Is it true? (toasted bread question)

If you toast a slice of white bread you somehow take away the un -nutrient stuff or is it still as bad for you as eating it untoasted.

So if I was to switch to whole grain or wheat and toast it will it take away the healhty stuff?

I am confused...thanks

  • White bread is a "simple carb" and is pretty much nothing but sugar. It causes your insulin to spike and then it crashes - making you feel tired and sluggish. Whole grains are "complex carbs" and allow your insulin to be distributed slowly and more evenly, keeping you full for a longer period of time. Toasting the bread does not change what it is!

  • If anything don't they say burning things causes carcinogens? So they wouldn't it be like adding something bad to your bread?

  • I think you're just removing water from it,possibly some sugar.You should eat wheat anyway.White bread is just empty calories. Sara Lee has a whole grain white that is very good.
