The glorious deception of American marketing works especially well in the bread aisle. Some bread that may be marketed as "whole grain," just isn't whole grain at all.
The red flags to look for? The words “multigrain” and “made with whole wheat” on the packaging, says Kimball. When in doubt, look at the label. If the first ingredient listed is enriched wheat flour, you’re getting plain white flour in that loaf. Stick to the ones that say they’re 100% whole wheat or whole grain to be safe.
