The World of Breads: Wonderful Creations With a Few Ingredients
The old saying, "Bread is the Staff of Life" certainly has merit. Think of how boring our daily diet would be if we didn't have this wonderful food?
And isn't it quite amazing that a wad of flour, a bit of water and at times - a rising agent, an egg and a spice can work together to create sensational foods for our daily diet?
We can enjoy plain white basic bread - or we can add a bit of yeast, ground cinnamon and brown sugar to the recipe, and oh my - we have a set of cinnamon rolls that can take the bite off of a sweet tooth for about 150 to 200 kcals - depending greatly upon the size of the roll as well as the amount of icing on top.
Frankly, cinnamon rolls make a fair choice - and a better choice than many other sweet treats when it comes to desserts. Add some fruit into the mix and we've taken things up another healthy level as long as Miss Sugar stays minimal.
Breads, Grains Highest & Lowest in Cholesterol Content
On that note, let's look at the cholesterol contained in some of the more popular breads. The food containing the most in our data chart below is the Popover at 60 mg's. Common breads that often find their way to our kitchen table are very minimal in cholesterol values.
Cornbread is another food that we need to monitor as it's a bit pricey in this area at 35 mg's.
Eggs & Oil Add Cholesterol Content to Recipes
Know what shoots those values upwards? The addition of eggs to the recipe - such as commonly found in cornbread and popovers.
The other ingredients which shoots those fatty acid values over the moon concerns cooking oils which is why it's important to opt for the healthier blends - such as extra virgin olive oil, peanut, and canola.
