Health & Nutrition Notes for White Bread

As we look at our data chart posted below we can quickly see that the amount of energy values contained in White Bread varies greatly depending upon the size of the slice.

One serving generally is equivalent to a slice - but with so many different sizes available at the market - which qualifies as a serving?

Actually, if you'll look on the nutritional label of the package you'll see that almost all state that one slice equals a serving - no matter if that slice weighs 9 grams or more than 30 grams.

Simply put, it's up to the individual (consumer) to determine how many servings of grain are required in their daily eating plan for a healthy body.

Package nutrition labels use the 2000 calorie daily diet as their pattern for setting recommended serving sizes - so for a petite woman or a child, serving sizes will differ greatly than for the individual who requires 2000 kcals per day for optimum health.

On that note while a small lady might need only 6 servings of grains per day, a large man may require 11 or more.

Caloric Values, Single Serving

One slice of white bread that weighs 25 grams contains 66 calories. This is considered as a medium size portion; a larger serving contains about 80 calories.
