Ever felt confused over which loaf of bread contains the most wholegrains? Bread labelled as ‘wholemeal’ must be made with wholemeal flour, however the content of wholemeal flour varies with loaf. Some wholemeal breads contain added grains while others, none at all. On the other hand, bread may be made with white flour but loaded with added grains.
