Oroweat Dutch Country 100% Whole Wheat Bread Review

Oroweat Dutch Country Smooth Texture 100% Whole Wheat BreadI saw a loaf of Oroweat Dutch Country Smooth Texture 100% Whole Wheat Bread for $1.79 at Wal-Mart along with a $0.40 off coupon stuck to the wrapper - that was such a bargain for whole wheat bread, so I quickly snatched up a loaf. But beware fellow bargain hunters, this was not as good as I thought it would be and cannot compare to the deliciousness of Oroweat Whole Grain & Flax English Muffins.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 slice (38 grams)
Calories: 100
Total Fat: 1.5 grams, 2%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 200 mg, 8%
Carbohydrates: 18 grams
Fiber: 3 grams, 12%
Sugars: 3 grams
Protein: 4 grams

The biggest turn off for me (which may be a turn on for some) is that the texture is comparable to that of cheap, white bread - it may be because I haven't had whities in some time, so I have become accustomed to the lovely texture of a nice loaf of all natural whole wheat bread. Sure it's soft, but it's the type of soft that comes with preservatives, not the typical softness that one thinks of when describing whole wheat bread. Furthermore, the crusts are polar opposite to the soft middle, being as dry as can be.

Each 38 gram slice of Oroweat Dutch Country Smooth Texture 100% Whole Wheat Bread provides 100 calories, 2% of the daily value for total fat, 8% of the DV for sodium, 3 grams of fiber, 3 grams of sugar and 4 grams of protein.

The ingredient list is fairly straightforward and you won't find high fructose corn syrup, and since this also has has 19 grams of whole grains and 12% of the DV for fiber, if you are hooked on white bread, then I would suggest Oroweat Dutch Country Smooth Texture 100% Whole Wheat Bread as an alternative. However, to all my wheat bread fanatics, this is not the bread for you ... or me. It's not that it's bad, just not what I expected.
