Best Breads For Diabetics: Not All Breads Are Equal

Many diabetics are told by their doctors to completely eliminate bread from their diet. While store-bought white bread is one of the worst foods a diabetic can eat, there are some variations of wheat bread that are safe and delicious. White bread isn’t the only bread on the shelf! Rye bread is a very healthy way to get your bread fix. It contains antioxidants, fiber, and can even reduce your risk of certain cancers!

Pepperidge Farm Deli Flats are a great product for diabetics that can be used for sandwiches or burgers! They are full of fiber and filling enough to satisfy that bread craving.

The best whole wheat bread for diabetics is Wonder Bread 100% Whole Wheat, a light and fluffy bread that is far from the dry, stiff wheat breads from other brands.
