Would these ingredients be considered whole wheat bread? http://www.vegetariantimes.com/article/white-bread-vs-wheat-bread/ How can I tell if bread is really whole wheat? Color used to be a clue, but no more. Although white bread is white because it’s been bleached, some dark bread has just had caramel coloring added to it. Look for “whole grain” or “whole wheat” as the first ingredient on the label. If any other ingredient is first, put the loaf back and keep looking. If the ingredients of the bread say: Unbleached enriched flour (wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, reduced iron thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid). Would that be considered whole wheat bread?
