Ever wondered how many calories there are in the bread you eat, as part of your sandwiches or just as plain buns. I have listed the calories in bread in the list below, they are shown per weight of 100 grams. An average slice weighs about 40 grams (1.5 oz) but some slices can be up to 70 grams in weight depending on the bread.
Most bread calories come from carbs, for example in white bread, carbohydrates come from refined flour, the calories are absorbed more rapidly than in brown or wholemeal breads. Brown bread calories are absorbed slower due to the much higher fiber levels. High fiber foods contain just as many calories however, the fiber fills up the stomach quicker so we tend to eat less food.
If like me a lot of your meals are sandwich and therefore bread based, then this list of calories will give you a right guide to calculate how many calories your sandwiches take.
