How many calories are in bread?
An average slice of bread contains 80 calories, but the calories start to add up when bread is topped with lots of butter, margarine, peanut butter or mayonnaise.
What to do with days-old bread?
You can slice it and grill it to make bruschetta, or cut it up to make bread pudding, croutons, or bread salad. You can also make bread crumbs and use it as stuffing and thickener in soups and dips.
How can you keep bread's freshness longer?
Seal the pack with its unique G-lock device. After getting the slices you need, simply reseal the pack with the G-lock. This prevents air from drying out the bread.
Save the top end slice of the loaf. Use it to cover the rest of the loaf to retain softness and moistness.
Keep the bread in a cool and dry place. Placing it under direct sunlight for a long period of time may cause the bread to moisten and lead to premature molding. Also, avoid storing bread near hot areas such as the top of refrigerators and gas stoves.
Bread easily absorbs odors. Keep it away from items that emit strong odors such as onions, detergents and insecticides.
Make sure your hands are clean. Touching bread with unclean hands can cause premature molding.
You may store remaining bread in the refrigerator or freezer to prolong its set shelf life. Then reheat using a toaster or microwave oven for 3 to 5 minutes.
Is skipping breakfast a good way to lose weight?
People who regularly skip breakfast have increased tendencies for weight gain because they easily get hungry and tend to snack on high calorie foods. Eating a healthy breakfast like bread or cereals improves your energy levels and makes you less likely to crave for mid-morning snack or a chocolate bar.
What’s the difference between whole wheat and white bread?
Both whole wheat and white bread are made from wheat flour. Whole wheat bread includes the entire kernel – the bran, germ and endosperm, while white bread is milled from only the endosperm. Both whole wheat and white breads are high in complex carbohydrates and low in fat.
