  • My sister buys potato bread and she's a health freak so I thought maybe I should buy that instead of wheat like normal. Thanks ladies.

  • Whole grain breads are the most healthy, some wheat breads are not healthy b/c the are still processed.

  • Depends what's in the wheat ingredients - if one of the first ingredients is enriched flour, it's just as bad as potato. Wheat bread is only good for you if it's 100% whole wheat. Potato bread is denser and more filling - but will be just as quickly digested as white, and will turn to fat just as quickly as white - same goes for non-whole grain wheat. So if you're buying 100% whole wheat, and the main ingredient is 100% something, keep buying what you're buying - potatoe bread is NOT healthier than that. If you're buying cheap fake-wheat bread, it won't make a difference.
