Whole Grain Bread vs. Uprising Foods

If you’re anything like us, you love bread. Think of mouth-watering rye sandwiches stacked sky-high with luscious deli meats, delicious soups in a bread bowl, and creamy avocado spread perfectly over toast and topped with an egg. When it comes to the best food on the planet, it’s hard not to dub bread the king. 

Whether you’re in the mood for a filling meal or just want a quick snack, bread is highly versatile and can be used in many different ways to combat hunger pangs. 

Craving a sweet treat? Make bread pudding

Feeling snackish? Serve up a tasty tray of finger sandwiches. 

Want to add a nice crunch to your salad? Use bread to whip up a batch of homemade croutons. 

Have a hankering for something a bit more decadent? Indulge in an ooey-gooey, ultra-cheesy ham panini. 

Needless to say, bread is pretty wonderful!

That being said, despite being major bread aficionados here at Uprising Food, there is one teensy-weensy thing about our favorite food that we’re not particularly fond of—the ingredients commonly found in bread.  

The Downside of Traditional Bread

If you’ve ever read the nutritional info on the back of a loaf of traditional white bread, the ingredients are quite alarming—we're talking preservatives, sugars, and excess vegetable oils that can turn the bread aisle into a health lovers' nightmare. That’s not even mentioning the shockingly high number of carbohydrates, grams of sugar, and calories typically found in a single slice. It’s easy to see how bread has adopted a pretty bad rap over the years

Thankfully, as society has become a bit more health-conscious, healthier bread options have begun to hit the shelves — such as whole-grain bread and Uprising Food’s Superfood Loaf. But, which one is best? We’ll tell you. 

In this post, we’re diving into the delicious world of bread to compare the top two kinds to uncover the superior loaf. Does whole-grain or whole wheat bread live up to all the hype? Or does Uprising Food’s Superfood Loaf reign supreme? 

Read on to find out! 

What’s So Terrible About Traditional White Bread, Anyway? 

No matter how you slice it, bread is a staple in the American diet. From buttered toast at breakfast to sandwiches at lunch and warm baskets of bread at dinner, it’s not difficult to nosh on this standby ingredient daily. Over the last decade, however, particularly as keto and gluten-free diets have become increasingly popular, bread has gotten a pretty terrible rap — but why? 

Well, to put it simply, it’s because of the ingredients. 

Compared to other foods like fresh fruits and veggies, white bread is relatively low in essential nutrients such as fiber and protein. It's easy to assume the bread you find in stores is similar to the homemade bread recipes we see online—yeast, flour, water, and whatever extra goodies your heart desires. Instead, it’s loaded with hard-to-pronounce ingredients that provide absolutely no nutritional value, including:

If you ask us, these questionable ingredients don’t exactly sound like things you’d want to put in your body— especially seeing as some of them are commonly used in household cleaning products such as different disinfectants and bleach.  

What’s the Difference Between Refined Grains and Whole Grains? 

Chances are you’ve heard about refined grains and whole grains before, but what’s the difference? 

In a nutshell:

  • Found in traditional white bread, when refined grains ( aka enriched grains) are processed, the germ, endosperm, and bran are removed to give bread a smoother consistency. Although many body-nourishing nutrients are lost in the refining process, manufacturers can add synthetic versions of those nutrients. The lost fiber, however, is often not replaced. 
  • Found in whole grain bread and many other healthy foods, whole grains contain all portions of the grain’s kernel and are packed with fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. 

So What Exactly Is Whole Grain Bread?

Unlike traditional white bread, which is highly processed and made with refined grains, whole grain bread is made with — you guessed it — whole grains like oats, barley, spelt, or quinoa.

Experts recommend eating five to eight ounces of whole grains daily to support a healthy lifestyle. Although research is still ongoing, some of the potential benefits of a diet that consists of healthy whole grains include:

  • Promotes healthy digestion
  • Supports good cardiovascular health
  • Combats hunger pangs by keeping you full
  • Plays a role in keeping blood glucose levels in check
  • Provides many essential nutrients needed for optimal health 

Bread made with whole grains can provide many health benefits — however, there is a downside: carbohydrates. 

Despite being oh-so-good for us, whole grain bread is a high-carb food that ultimately turns into sugar in the body after consumption. 

Of course, not all whole grain bread is created equal, and some is fiber-packed to help slow down digestion and, in turn, prevent blood sugar levels from spiking. But at the end of the day, all types of grains still convert into sugar, and if it’s not utilized by the body as energy, even whole wheat flour gets stored as fat. 

What’s the Scoop on Uprising Food’s Superfood Loaf?

What if we told you that you could finally have your cake and eat it, too — would you be interested? We thought so. Despite traditional white bread (and even some whole-grain breads) giving bread a bad rap, Uprising Food’s Superfood Loaf is truly something special. 

For starters, it’s not made with any grains. Instead, it’s masterfully crafted with clean superfood ingredients, such as:

  • Psyllium Husk: is a water-loving substance derived from the psyllium plant. When consumed, this coveted superfood expands due to water in the gut and forms a gel-like material that pushes icky toxins and wastes right out of the body.   
  • Almonds: are full of protein and healthy fats, as well as vitamins and minerals. 
  • Flax Seed: are very high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. 
  • Egg Whites: contain many nutrients and are low in fat.  
  • Apple Cider Vinegar: is apple juice that has been fermented twice, which turns the sugars from the fruit into acetic acid. 

In addition to its incredible list of healthy ingredients, Uprising Food’s Superfood Loaf is gluten-free and keto-friendly, containing nine grams of fiber, six grams of protein, and only two net carbs per serving. It’s kind of like a healthy bar disguised as a sourdough.

Oh, and the best part? The taste is undeniably amazing!

Uprising Food’s Superfood Loaf is one-of-a-kind and made with only the best of the best ingredients. Artisan-baked and delivered fresh directly to your door — finally, bread you can feel good about eating. 

So, Which Is Better: Whole Grain Bread or Uprising Food’s Superfood Loaf?
