I've definitly been looking at the nutrition labels of the food I buy, and comparing ingredients and nutritional stuff.
Lately it's been white vs. whole wheat pasta / brown rice.
The brands I have, there isn't much difference as far as calories and carbs - the difference lays in fiber from what I see.
With breads I see a difference in Light/Whole Wheat breads compared to white - but that tends to be "specialty" wheat/light breads. When I looked at regular Whole Wheat vs. white -not much again.
I googled it - and it seems as if Fiber is the major player in making the decision??? That most white products are "fortified" and are almost as nutritional or more so than wheat.
So - the question is - is Whole Wheat that much of a better decision??? Will it make or break a person?? What do ya'll think / know?
(PS - I don't mind whole wheat pasta or bread - but brown rice... yuk)
