Study Finds That Eating White Bread Increases Risk Of Weight Gain, Obesity

May 30, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
The controversy over the healthfulness of white bread continues. A new as-yet-unpublished Spanish study that tracked the dietary habits of 9,000 college graduates over five years find that those who ate only white bread, especially two or more portions a day, were 40 percent more likely to become overweight or obese than those who ate less. People who ate both white and whole grain breads, however, were not at risk for weight gain. The researchers found no significant connection between whole grain bread consumption and weight gain, probably “because of the types of carbohydrates, fiber content and other ingredients in whole grain bread”.
