Cloud bread may be healthier for some people, but not for others. That’s because while it has a few upsides, it also has a few downsides, depending on your diet. One of cloud bread’s biggest draws is the fact that it’s about half the calories of regular bread, with 40 calories per slice compared to 80 in your average sandwich bread, Health.com reports. If you’re trying to lose weight or count calories, this makes it a much better option. Because it’s grain-free, it also has a lot fewer carbs, so it’s ideal for anyone eating low-carb or keto, for instance.
However, since cloud bread is made with egg and cream cheese (instead of flour), it’s surprisingly high in fat and can have up to six grams per serving. Plus, as a nutrition editor at Health.com points out, cloud bread lacks some of the nutrients you’d find in regular bread, namely fiber and other vitamins and minerals.
