You also need to avoid breads made with shortening unless the fat content is less than 3% by weight as well as all fried breads such as Indian puri. This still leaves you with plenty of breads you can eat and still beat your diabetes. Breads diabetics can eat Whole-grain breads usually have low GI values (less than 56). Regular whole-grain bread has a GI value of about 51 while the rating for pumpernickel is about 50. Barley bread (if you can find it) is very dense and has a GI value of about 34 while wheat tortillas have a rating of about 30. Thus as a diabetic you can eat most wholemeal breads rye breads and crisp breads made from rye. You can also eat unleavened flatbreads such as whole-wheat Indian breads like roti and chapatti though you need to check the salt and fat content.
It is the high fibre in the bran of the whole grains which slows the release of glucose. Whole grains are great for our health in many other ways thanks to their high levels of vitamins and minerals. Most whole grains are particularly rich in B vitamins. Whole grains also have plenty of protein. One of these proteins is gluten. Gluten makes dough elastic which helps it to rise and keep its shape. It constitutes about 80% of the protein in wheat seed which is one reason why wheat is popular for bread-making. It is also found in barley and rye. Making bread Bread is made by mixing up dough a paste of flour and water (or other liquid). The dough is usually leavened (see below) allowed to rise and then cooked. Breads may also contain extra ingredients such as salt or butter to improve taste.
Plenty of breads can be classified as semi-wholemeal ie bread made form a mix of whole grains and refined grains. It is noticeable that as the ratio of whole grains in the flour drops. For example a 50:50 mix of wholemeal and refined flour usually has a GI value of at least 58 while 100% wholemeal bread has an average GI value of 51. Thus you need to be cautious when eating whole-grain bread (white bread with added whole grains) and granary bread. You should only eat small amounts of white pitta bread (GI value about 57). Whole-grain pitta however has a slightly lower GI value due to the phytates they contain which slow the rate of digestion. Conclusion So there you have it. When deciding which bread to choose to beat your diabetes you should favour bread made from 100% wholemeal flour which has a low salt (sodium) content little fat (maximum 3% by weight) and does not contain added sugar. You ll find all this information as well as the amount of fibre the bread contains on the label.
