    Im no nutritionalist, but it seems like it would be healthy, looks like everything in it is whole grain and organic. You just dont want anything with "enriched" ingredients. But sometimes breads with a laundry list of ingredients can be unhealthy in disguise. Like I said, everything in there sounds healthy, sprouted grains Ive heard are the healthiest way to get whole grains. But if you're not sure, Id ask a nutritionalist, or just buy 100% whole wheat, you can't go wrong with that. As long as you see "whole" or "sprouted" next to everything it should be ok

    Just make sure the FIRST ingredient is 100%whole wheat or whole wheat, not enriched or multigrain or something that will try to trick you. But yes, this bread looks quite good to me. Not sure what whole grain berries are but they say whole wheat so I am assuming some part of the wheat. The rest of the ingredients look good, too. That bread looks very much like a winner.

    Yes, this bread is healthy.There is no processed sugar. Plus there are whole grains versus processed flour.

    PS- Ditch white rice, but eat quinoa.

    Yes, I think the bread you are considering is quite "healthy" in the traditional sense of the word.

    You know when you have to post links to what bread you're eating that you're taking things a bit too seriously. Just get some wholemeal bread and quit worrying.

    Try to see if you can get Ezekiel brand bread near you (Trader Joe's? Whole Foods? Some Giants, but it will be in the freezer section). It is sprouted grain bread, and even better than whole grain. Tastes good, too!

    I don't know, mate, I thought it was a very good question. What you eat is quite important, at least to me.

    Me, I eat Sweet Bay's 9 grain bread (or is it 10? :) ). It's expensive, but is very good stuff.

    I've recently been diagnosed with diabetes so I have to be mindful of the type of food I eat. So Jasmine rice and white bread are out of the question but replaced them with quinoa mixed with pearled barley. For breads, I go for whole grain (not whole wheat) ones and I have to make sure that they don't contain high fructose syrups. The one you provided appears to be a good one.
