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.
Click on the chart to enlarge for easier reading.

Note: 15 carbs = 1 carb serving
