Healthiest bread?

I had a friend who had a healthy and active lifestyle and he thought that spelt bread was the best bread for you. Is this true? In your opinion, which is the healthiest bread?

  • I have never heard of that kind of bread. I like a brand called Daves Killer Bread, whole wheat and nuts, yum, I love it, it's crunchy with a hint of honey.

  • Isn't spelt and millet for gluten free people? I'm gonna say Dave's!

  • No, spelt is not for gluten free people.

  • 100% whole grain as far as I know.

  • Define "healthy". Bread, of any kind, is not healthy for me.

  • Here's what I don't get: every bread I find at the stores (Whole Foods included) is made with what are perceived as "healthy" ingredients (whole grain, etc.) yet still have things like soy or canola oil (unhealthy) so in my opinion, the only healthy bread is the one you make at home. Bread should only have a few ingredients-flour, water, salt, yeast.

  • healthy breads will contain at least 3 grams of fiber a slice, so any number of breads can be healthy! But I also agree with Anon right above me that the fewer the ingredients the better. I love breads sweetened with honey instead of white sugar.

  • Never heard or seen Spelt bread.
    Whole wheat, sugar free bread is just fine.
    It doesn't make it better to add nuts and oats. It just makes it different.
