Do you avoid the bread aisle just to escape the confusion felt by so many carb-conscious consumers? It's true: Bread is a tricky product to buy, especially for people with diabetes. Now you can return to the bread aisle with confidence -- thanks to a list of products that recently received the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval. Our staff and dietitians picked through the loaves to find those that met our nutritional guidelines. Next we brought in more than 100 people, including PWDs, to taste the brand-hidden products. The top breads, buns, tortillas, and English muffins were awarded the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval.
Every bread tested had to meet these health requirements per 2 slices, 1 tortilla, or 1 bun:
-- 150 calories or less
-- 3 g total fat or less
-- 1.5 g saturated fat or less
-- 0 g trans fat
-- 30 g carb or less
-- 300 mg sodium or less
-- At least 2 g fiber
