Organic Wholemeal Bread (V)
Wholemeal bread contain the whole grain. This includes the nutrient-rich germ (the inner layer) which is packed with minerals, vitamins B and E and phytochemicals (plant compounds with possible health benefits), the energy-providing middle layer and the fibre-rich bran layer. When grains are refined, to make white flour, rice or bread, the outer bran layer and germ are stripped away, so that the grain loses some of its fibre and its nutrients.
Wholemeal bread contains more fibre than white bread. Dietary fibre has many health benefits. It can help reduce the risk of certain health conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes. It is good for digestive health as it helps make waste move more efficiently through the digestive tract, which can prevent constipation. It also offers a food source for the 'friendly' gut bacteria, helping them produce substances believed to protect the gut wall.
Wholemeal bread contains more vitamins and minerals than most white breads. Wholemeal flour contains vitamins such as folate, riboflavin, and vitamins B1, B2, and B3, along with minerals such as selenium.
An aromatic loaf with a sturdy crust and a sprinkling of oat flakes and sunflower seeds inside, and just a hint of caraway, fennel and coriander. A hearty, European-style organic bread.
