What type of bread should I buy?

Did you know that bread is bought by 99.8% of British households, and the equivalent of nearly 11 million loaves are sold each day? According to nabim, that’s more bread than loo rolls!

At Ingles, we don’t claim to be nutritionists, but what we can tell you, is exactly how and what goes into some of our tasty, top selling bread ranges. We always bake our loaves fresh each day and some of the wonderful ingredients we use offer incredible health benefits when consumed as part of a balanced diet.

Our wholemeal range doesn’t just taste good, its packed with plenty of fibre, which has been associated with lower risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and bowel cancer.

Oat and Barley
Ingles Oat and Barley bread provides more fibre per 100g than any other loaf we sell. Choosing foods with oats can make you feel fuller for longer and improve blood sugar levels, while a diet rich in fibre can aid help digestion.

Scofa is a traditional Irish bread with the delicious taste and texture of Soda Bread. It’s naturally high in fibre, low in saturated fat and completely vegan friendly. Eating plenty of fibre can help improve cholesterol levels and can form part of a healthy, balanced diet.

The only thing better than the smell of a freshly baked loaf is the taste. Every mouthful of our vegan-friendly Multiseed range is packed with pumpkin seeds, linseeds and sunflower seeds offering a great natural source of fibre and natural protein.

Ancient Grain
This popular bread range is made with Spelt, Emmer, Einkorn, Millet Seed, Brown Linseed and Sunflower Seeds. Many of these seeds contain healthy monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats and important vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

If you’re feeling inspired and fancy trying something new, pop into one of our shops and see what’s on offer. Remember, to guarantee the best possible taste for our customers, we stock items fresh each morning.
