If you look up Bread on the Energy
240 Bread, brown, slice (25g) '.
This means that an average slice of brown
bread weighs 25 grams and that 100 grams, i.e. four slices, contain
240 kilocalories of energy. Therefore one slice will contain 240 ÷ 4
= 60 kilocalories. If you eat more than one slice you will need to count
60 kilocalories for each slice when you are working out the total amount
of energy you are consuming. If you have average servings of butter
and honey on each slice, you'll have to add another 73 plus 117 kilocalories
for each slice.
You can see what other nutrients are in
brown bread by looking this item up in each chart. For example, 100
grams contain 8 grams of protein; therefore one slice (25 grams) contains
2 grams of protein.
Similarly we can find out how much vitamin
is in a slice of brown bread. A vitamin is a micronutrient, being present
in minute quantities, so the value will be given in milligrams. There
are 0.2 milligrams of vitamin B-1 in 100 grams of brown bread (four
slices), so one slice contributes 0.05 milligrams of B-1 to a recommended
daily intake of 0.8 milligrams.
Other nutrients in brown bread are present
in very small or even 'trace' quantities; for example, there is only
0.4 gram of saturated
fat and only a trace of vitamin
