    Question Nutrional benefits of Toasted vs Untoasted Bread

    You can tell I'm really baked by the daftness of this poll...

    Whilst tucking into a bowl of minestrone soup and dipping my (untoasted) bread in it, I wondered is there any health benefit of toast over normal? Does heating the ingredients affect their potency or could it even be detrimental?

    Without looking on Google, what do you think?

    Do you prefer toasted or untoastd?

    From what I remember, heating food to the point of discolouration promotes the formation of carcinogens. I'm pretty certain that this true for meat, but it may be less so for other products.

    Burning (ie carbonising) food does indeed produce carcinogens. As does salting & pickling. However, you can offset any detrimental effects by drinking green tea which is high in anti-oxidants & is a proven anti-carcinogen.

    Hot food generally is actually bad for you - our digestive system is not designed to take anything above blood temperature.

    Bread, wheat: http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/...roducts/4868/2

    Bread, wheat, toasted: http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/...roducts/4869/2

    After laboriously clicking between tabs, it appears that most vitamins and minerals as well as Omega 3 & 6, and protein, and Dietary Fiber values all go up with toasting.... all be it a very small amount in most cases.

    But as far as bread goes, the difference between white bread, made with chemically cleaned and processed white flour (...or dust)
    ...and a good seeded farm house whole meal loaf are quite far apart!

    I don't eat white bread but love a few slices of toasted farmhouse wholemeal for breaky or a supper snack.

    ...If you want a good antioxidant, we are in the right forum ......get juicing ya weed!!!! lol

    I don't buy bread for myself anymore - I've created my own recipe for a wholemeal/rye loaf with caraway seeds. It's as near to the East European bread my Mother used to get (from a Polish Deli which has long since shut) that I was raised on. I've searched all the Polish/Lithuanian/Latvian shops round here but can't find anything like it so I now bake my own. Sunday is usually bread-making day for me.

    The Memsahib still insists on getting Tesco Wholemeal for her morning toast but I won't touch the stuff. After my bread it's like eating tasteless, brown coloured cotton wool.

    Yeah, that's a similar thing but it's not the one I'm after. Believe me I've searched high & low & I just can't find it for love nor money. That's why I've resorted to making my own. I did actually see it on-line from a shop over West London way but I'd have to get it on mail order & they want £3.50 for a 500g loaf plus p+p. They're having a fucking giraffe!!

    So I now get proper decent bread & the wonderful therapy that comes with making it myself. Total win! I'll post up a pic tomorrow when I've made the next one.

    Anyway, all this is displacing my task for today which is to address my knackered washing machine. Someone give me a kick up the arse or I'll end up spending all day on here & it'll never get done.

    I spent all day doing the sodding washing machine so I didn't have time. I might have a go tonight.
