Mountain bread or wholemeal sliced bread

Postby LadyBug » Tue May 09, 2006 1:08 pm

Which is better mountain bread or wholemeal sliced bread?

Does anyone else eat it :?:

I have quit eating any white stuff... and wanting to bring my carbs down a bit! :roll:

Any help would be wonderful :)

At a guess I'd say wholemeal but I really don't know. The Mountain bread wouldn't have yeast in it so that would be a plus.
Tegan (Butterfly_Dawn) would probably know more.
And Fay (Fairie) would also know but I haven't seen her around here for a while.

Moutain bread is a flat bread that you can make wraps out of...

if you want to cut carbs I would say the mountain bread would be better just due to its sheer lesser bulk, but check the values for your usual bread and mountain bread next time you're in the shops and complre the values per 100g (you may need to write them down and convert to kj or cal later if they are different). I don't have any mountain bread at the moment, and I would imagine each loaf of bread would be different.

mountain bread is great because it is low in sugar.

there are also lots of different types; corn, rye, etc.

They are nice toasted!! Apparently you can use them instead of the seaweed stuff on sushi rolls as well. Has anyone ever tried that?

Oh good idea I don't eat sushi rolls due to that stuff. Can't get the past the smell to taste the rest. I'm not usually so fussy but that really turns me off.

I am with you Kim, I tried it once and I nearly hurled just from the smell and I thought "Oh well they say it is healthy" so I held my nose and bit into it...well needless to say the garbage bin had a good feed that day!!!

I wonder if you can use rice paper instead too!
