According to Eat This, Not That, just one slice of the Dave’s 21 Whole Grains and Seeds Killer loaf offers a generous-for-bread five grams of protein and an equal amount of dietary fiber, which totals around 17 percent of the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI). This is generous, as some standard sliced breads offer as little as one gram of fiber per slice.
Despite these nutritional benefits, Dave’s Killer Bread has quite a lot of sugar packed into each slice. According to Business Insider, eating two slices of the Raisin’ the Roof Killer Bread variety surpasses the amount of sugar packed within a fun-sized caramel candy bar, offsetting the benefits of being rich in nutrients like omega-3s — especially for those who don’t want to see a spike in their sugar levels after a meal.
It’s natural for sugar to form in bread during the baking process, but it’s also not uncommon for additional sugars to be thrown into the mix as well ( via the BBC). High-sugar diets can negatively impact one’s health, according to Stack, putting consumers at a greater risk for developing obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and some cancers. Ingesting a surplus of sugar can also accelerate tooth decay. The maximum amount of recommended added sugar per day caps off at 25 grams for women and 36 grams for men.
