Yes – you can include bread within your daily servings of complex carbohydrates. Keep in mind that one serving of carbohydrates is one thin slice of bread.

We recommend choosing a wholegrain bread or traditional sourdough. The sour culture used to make sourdough bread slows down the digestion of carbohydrates (sugar) into your bloodstream.

When choosing a wholegrain bread, pick one that contains 15-20% grains and seeds (by checking the ingredients list) and / or has more than 9g of fibre per 100g. Grains and seeds provide a good source of fibre, which is important for gut health and satiety (helping you feel fuller for longer).
