Arrow Is the crust of bread healthier for you than just the bread?

Was having the debate the other day if the crust was in fact healthier for you than just the bread. We did some research and found this webpage which says that the crust is actually healthier for you. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...1105080817.htm
Is this a valid claim?

I don't know, but back in Ukraine there was a sying "if you want to be healthy, then eat only the crust". How or why this came about to be I don't know.

I don't think the crust is any healthier than the rest of it.
( unless the butter that I brush on the outside has some health value to it.)

I was told that as well, but in reality, the crust and the bread are exactly the same thing, the outside has only burned to form the "crust"

Well, breadman's link contains an explanation scientific-sounding enough to have convinced me! :-)

Unless the heat required to burn the bread is coincidentally the same temperature that converts whatever it is into that anti-oxidant.

I'd never heard that, but I was told if you eat the crusts, you will have beautiful children. It worked for me!

Unless it overcooks and blackens, then its carcinogenic supposedly (this is not limited to just bread).
