The best whole-grain breads: Cooking and Nutrition

THE NEXT TIME YOU PICK UP a loaf of bread, make it whole grain. Not only do whole grains lower your risk of heart disease and cancer, they also provide steady energy. The best brands of bread use whole grains or whole-grain flour as their first ingredient and leave out preservatives and hydrogenated oils.
