The Link Between Bread & High Blood Pressure?

A Canadian survey of more than 2,000 white, wholemeal, and mixed grain type breads found that some of the brands had up to 1,050 mg of sodium per 100 g (3.53 oz) which could equate to about 2 pieces of bread depending on the type of bread. This does not include what goes into a sandwich, such as lunch meat, salted butter, cheese, etc. which of course could add even more to the salt intake!

The Problem: So what’s the big deal about this amount of sodium? Besides for it being fattening because sodium causes the body to retain more water, but even more serious is that too much sodium (the daily limit is 2,300 mg) can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.

The solution: Look for bread that is 35 mg per slice or less. Or even none!

Suggestion: Einkorn from YL


The threshold for high blood pressure has officially been lowered from 140/90 mm Hg to 130/80. “We reviewed the data and found that the risk for cardiovascular disease nearly doubled in the 130s over 80s, compared to a normal blood pressure which is still considered less than 120/80,” says Robert Carey, M.D. vice chair of the American Heart Association’s guideline writing committee.
