    Multigrain is 100% marketing fluff. Whole grain bread is indeed healthier due to having the husk, which has fiber as well as vitamins and minerals, but putting more than one kind of grain, presumably all without the husks (because if they were truly whole grain you think they’d also say that), means very little for nutrition.

    Also, is it not bullshit that whole grain anything is way more expensive despite requiring less processing and less raw material since you don’t have to remove parts of the grain seeds? Back in the Victorian era whole grain was normie bread and white bread was more expensive. Why the hell did that flip around in the 21st century?
