Where to find wheat bread in the grocery store

Whole wheat bread is made using wheat flour, which can be partly or entirely milled from wheat grains.

It’s the better alternative to white bread as it contains a higher amount of fiber with protein, and less calories.

Basically, it’s the bread you want to root for if you’re trying to maintain a healthy diet.

So if you’d like to add it to your pantry, here’s how to find whole wheat bread in the grocery store. 

Where can I find whole wheat bread?

You can find whole wheat bread in the Bread aisle of the grocery store.

Most stores have a Bread aisle, and sometimes, they mix it up with other grocery items like cereals, pop tarts, pancake mix, etc.

Another place you can check is the Bakery section. They’ve got all kinds of bread, especially freshly baked batches.

So you can get it hot from the oven.

If the store has a Deli (Delicatessen) section, you can also check there. They usually sell all kinds of sausages, pickled vegetables, dips, and even bread varieties.

Safeway

Safeway has a Bread aisle where you can check for wheat bread. But if you don’t feel like stepping out of your house, there’s a delivery option on the online store.


What is the difference between whole wheat and wheat bread?

Whole wheat bread and wheat bread aren’t the same.

The major difference is that whole wheat bread contains the entire grain kernel, which is made up of:

  • The bran
  • The germ
  • The endosperm

Meanwhile, wheat bread is made out of milled wheat, with the grain kernel removed. 

So it’s highly processed to increase shelf life.

But that means the fiber level is reduced. Wheat bread slices in between knife and wheat grains

If you’re going shopping for wheat bread, it’s preferable that you opt for whole wheat bread instead.

It contains double the amount of fiber you’ll get from wheat bread.
