PaanPaan makes a variety of ‘health breads’ and is starting an awareness campaign on the range of health breads to inform consumers on how to choose a health bread. 

Bread of late has had a bad reputation for being unhealthy, but not all bread is unhealthy.  A health bread can be both nourishing and delicious. To understand how to choose a health bread it is important to understand how wheat can be a part of a healthy diet.  

The wheat kernel is made of the endosperm, the bran and the germ.  White bread is made only from the endosperm, which is high in calories and low in nutrition. A health bread is made from the whole grain, including the bran and the germ, which are high in fibre and nutrients.  Flour made from the whole grain is called whole meal, or whole grain. A health bread also contains other nutritious grains and seeds which can be part of a healthy diet.  

Health breads are also free of preservatives, added sugar and added fat.  The taste of healthy bread can vary to suit various palettes and bread can be both delicious and nourishing, too. PaanPaan makes a variety of health breads to suit a range of dietary plans and palettes.
