CALORIES AND CARBS FOR BREADS, GRAINS, CEREALS
Here is a useful (especially for diabetics) chart I came across the other day in a diabetes brochure at the VA. Hopefully some of you will find it useful. And yes, I know the calories and carbs are basically the same in a slice of white or wheat bread. Notice that doesn't say whole-wheat bread. But the difference (again, especially important for diabetics) is in the way the body absorbs nutritionally deficient white bread vs wheat bread.
