{White Bread and Digestion

Light bread also contains protein and little amounts of fat and additional sugars. However, the bread must be digested by your body into components small enough to be absorbed, to benefit from these nutrients.


Following digestion, the tissues lining your small bowel absorb the compounds of fatty acids, glucose, amino-acids and glycerol discharged in the light bread you consumed. Glucose is the most abundant product of digestion that is white Breads, and this nutrient serves as a fuel source for your body's cells. Your brain and kidneys rely on sugar to function properly. The amino-acids in the polypeptide in light bread -- nearly 4 g in a 2-slice helping -- synthesize erythrocytes and help repair and build muscles and tissue, support your defense mechanisms. Even though white bread contains less than 2 g of fat per 2 pieces, this nutrient helps keep your cell membranes and allows for normal growth and development once the digestion process releases its elements to your own cells.

Health Problems

Your digestive tract may upset, if you suffer from celiac disease. Triticum, the predominant ingredient in light bread, contains a protein known as gluten, and this polypeptide provides bread dough its flexibility that is characteristic. Yet, celiac illness ends in an allergic reaction to gluten where the proteins molecules inflame and, in acute cases, harm the cells lining your small intestine. You must avoid light bread and some other source of gluten if you have celiac disease or have difficulty digesting gluten.


White bread comprises only in two pieces, which can be a very small amount over 1 g of fibre. Although your body will not absorb fiber, it is necessary to your own intestinal well-being. By supplying mass to waste materials, fiber lowers your risk of constipation and helps keep your digestion regular. Wholemeal bread is better than white bread as a source of fibre.
