Don't fret Steve and take heart. I am a label reader. And there are enough of us that eventually we will make a difference. More and more mothers today are concerned with what is being fed their children. All those B vitamins and other nutrients can be found in so many other foods. All I know is that when I cook from scratch (including bread) I feel so much better. And although it may be time consuming, making bread can be very therapeutic. Being a diabetic, I won't buy any product that has an 'ose ingredient in it. No matter what name they give it, it is sugar.

One alternative to white bread that I have found recently is oatmeal bread. Has a great texture and is a good substitue for white when making grilled cheese :). Oatmeal is also supposed to help with high cholesterol so I figured, why not try :).

Lately I've used whole wheat for toast in the morning and for my sandwich for lunch I've been alternating between white and whole wheat!

I loved white bread for home roasted turkey sammies and grilled cheese. But now I enjoy the nutty complex flavor of multi grain bread, seeded rye bread and sour dough breads better than white. I make homemade (10 grain) multi grain bread and it is wonderful.

I've cut out white/wholemeal bread over the last few months just because I don't eat much of it so when I buy a loaf most of it goes to waste. I've been eating pumpernickle and I much prefer it.

The Chorley Wood method was a crime against bread, you are lucky that it is not used much in the US.
Sounds like Wonder Bread (which is not at all wonderful ). They take out all the nutrients and add back in big tablets containing "vitamins and minerals" all made out of chemicals. Yuck.

When it comes down to it, no one knows their head from their behind. Eat what you like in reasonable portions and enjoy it. There's no reason to worry about what they say causes some ailment when you know in a couple years they are just going to change their mind again. It's as bad as the weather forecast with this stuff.
So which bread is best? The one that works the best for what you're doing.

Studies are always saying something that "use" to be good for you isn't good anymore. My theory is anything you eat that is packaged and sold in stores is subject to question. Hence all this cancer and disease that is so wide spread. But that's another story.........

But back to the question at hand.... I like wheat bread but I eat white every now and then. I think subway has the best wheat bread but I'm sure it has some type of flavor inhancer added, it's just too good.

Even when I was a child, many moons ago, and yet in Soviet Union, people knew that white bread is not good for you. The saying was : If yu want to be beautiful (don't forget those day full figure was comsider beautifull) and if you want to be healthy eat dark bread.
