    Try entering your postcode into the Real Bread Finder, http://www.sustainweb.org/realbread/

    Also read this, 'A wholegrain of truth? Industrial loaf names, claims and contents'

    "A Real Bread Campaign investigation of ‘wholegrain’ loaves marketed by some of the UK’s highest profile industrial loaf manufacturers found one loaf that declared merely a miserly 6% wholemeal flour. "

    http://www.sustainweb.org/publications/?id=266

    I bake my own or go to a trusted artisan bread maker.

    Wholemeal flour has to have the contents of the whole grain, and that includes the indigestible fibres which are cellulose or hemicellulose beta carbohydrates.

    But, for some reason, wholemeal loaves do not have to use wholemeal flour, just some.

    Burgen bread is 27.3% carb, which is a lot better than normal bread; but Sukrin bread is 2.5% carb. No contest.

    In Iceland (the frozen food store :) ) they sell Burgen bread all the time for £1 a loaf, much cheaper than the likes of Tesco and Asda.
