It’s January and the New Year resolution to maintain a healthy diet can be quite stressful. But we’re here to help! There is no need to eliminate your bread intake to maintain a healthy diet. Nowadays there are many varieties of bread to choose from to include in your diet including bread with grains.
All types of grains are good sources of complex carbohydrates and some key vitamins and minerals, but whole grains — the healthiest kinds of grains — in particular are an important part of a healthy diet. Grains are naturally high in fibre, helping you feel full and satisfied. Whole grains are also linked to a lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers and other health problems.
The Multigrain bread can be an important part of a healthy diet and an excellent way to eat more whole grains. The bread recipe includes a delightful mixture of seeds such as sunflower kernels, linseed and sesame seeds as well as oats and bran. Our Multigrain bread is low in sugars, has a great source of energy and fibre and assists in a calorie controlled diet.
This type of bread is strongly recommended for school children as it includes all the nutrients required by children.
Meanwhile, the Low GI bread is one type of bread which is ideal for those suffering from diabetes because it helps control the sugar levels in the blood. Low-glycaemic index foods have a glycaemic index value less than 55. These foods take a while to digest, resulting in a steady increase in blood sugar. Low GI diets appear to protect against weight gain and lifestyle related diseases such heart disease and diabetes.
Both the Multigrain and Low GI help you feel fuller for longer which makes them the ideal option lunches and breakfast. These can be both found at any Maypole outlet around the island.
