Healthy Bread Essentials for Life

Whole-wheat flour: High in fiber and nutrients like iron and calcium. It's a healthy substitute for white. (add extra water to the recipe.)

Rye flour: It helps maintain even blood sugar levels. Doughs made with it will be more dense since it's low in gluten than wheat.

Spelt flour: This is easier to digest than other forms of wheat for many. It's also low in gluten, the reason why breads made with it don't hold their shape and need to be baked in a mold or pan.

Quinoa flour: Loaded with amino acids, gluten-free quinoa flour has a nutty flavor when baked.
