iVillage.com: 'Healthy' Foods that Really Aren't

Health Food Imposter #9: Multi-Grain Bread

Not all multigrain and wheat breads are created equal -- some may not even contain ‘whole’ grains, and be high in sugar and low in fiber, says Rachel Berman, a registered dietitian, member of the American Dietitian Association and director of nutrition for Calorie Count.com. “Read the package for the words 'whole grain' to ensure that's what you are getting," Berman says.

The Better Pick: Berman recommends looking for a product with a label that reads 100-percent whole grain and check the ingredient list. “If the first ingredient is a whole grain (whole wheat, whole oat, whole rye) it's likely a large percentage of that product really is whole grain since the list is organized by concentration,” she says.
