  • what? I'm pretty sure white bread is the result of bleaching the flour... maybe i'm wrong.

  • No, toasting the bread does not provide nutrition nor fiber. White bread is made with the inner part of the grain, which removes the fiber-rich outer covering and the nutritious wheat germ, which is why whole wheat has the name- the outer layer and the wheat germ aren't removed.
