The number of common ailments associated with the above nutrient deficiencies is enormous and white flour products can be a major contributor if they are the staple food in the diet. In addition, refined white bread includes additives.

Refined white flour and products cannot stand alone nutritionally, they need added ingredients to ensure proper health. In addition, the high glycemic index of especially pretzels (80), white bread and muffins (70) adds further weight to the suggestion that beneficial foods need to be included with the white flour products. Ideally, whole grains such as oats can take the place of breakfast toast, or yeast extract can be added to the bread or toast, to give it a small boost for your nerves. Toast with tahini is great as the supply of vitamin E and minerals, plus protein, is excellent.

Let your bread be delightful, but healthful. Add natural ingredients to make the soft, spongy, white bread beneficial. May your daily bread be loaded with benefits and flavour.
