Think whole-grain bread is a good choice? Could it help you control your blood sugar? Not necessarily.
If you look at the graph above (made by the eminent Dr. David Unwin), you can see that the difference in effect on blood sugar levels is fairly small between different kinds of conventional bread. A single serving of any of them is equal to several teaspoons of sugar. You’d probably be better off avoiding it completely if you have diabetes.
Is there a better option if you’re really craving bread, one that does not affect blood sugar levels? Absolutely – just check out our low-carb bread recipes below.
