Move Over Broccoli: Australian Bakery Unveils Low-GI “Super Bread”

July 20, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
The glycemic index (GI) of bread can range from 54 to 87, depending on the type. But a bakery in Queensland, Australia, says it has developed a dense bread whose GI is about the same as broccoli (17), contains seven percent carbohydrates, 26 percent protein – about the same as red meat – and more fat, though from natural seeds. The owners of Ashmore Bakery Club say they developed the bread to “give health-conscious customers an alternative.” A final benefit? “We are extremely happy with the product and its taste,'' one of the owners said, adding that the new formula would “change the baking industry.”
