I looked at the ingrediemts and its all whole wheat
Though it has fat in it, it is what you would call "healthy fat" along with avocados, nuts and whatnot.
My suggestion for you would be to eat it with avocados and turkey ham with a little mustard.
Yes, it's healthy just because of those 2 nutrients
So, this bread does contain a lot of fiber. But it's not clear that really does anything good for you, because it's just ground up and mixed into the flour. The potential benefit of a true whole grain kernel is that the tough fibrous bran outer covering slows down the time it takes your body to digest it, and get to the inner starch. When the inner starch is released, that floods your bloodstream with blood sugar.
THAT quick spike in blood sugar is the potential problem with eating carbs. Spiking your blood sugar like that, frequently, causes a range of problems over time … insulin resistance, obesity, diabetes. Eating unbroken grain kernels might not be so bad because the bran layer slows down the digestion process – but that's not what's in this flatbread. The flatbread contains ground up flour.
Ground up whole grains expose the starch, and that means quick and easy digestion, no matter how much ground up fiber is along for the ride.
