1) Hi, I recently bought some wholemeal bread and it's pretty good stuff that's high in protein and fibre. However, it tastes alot better when toasted, and filling with 2 slices of low fat melted cheese easily packs a good, healthy meal. But by TOASTING the wholemeal bread till it's cripsy, will doing that cause the protein/fibre/vitamins it originally had to be 'destroyed'?

2) For Green Tea, what kind of sugars are in it? Is it 'good' sugar?

Thanks in advance!

For Green Tea, what kind of sugars are in it? Is it 'good' sugar? There is no sugar in green tea.

Thanks, but what about the protein and fibre? Will it still be there after toasting?

The green tea I'm refering to are those can drinks. Maybe that's where the sugar are from (it's stated in the nutrition stats)

yeah...brew your own green tea...those canned ones are usually sweeted with high fructose corn syrup among other things. not good at all.

green tea designed to jump on the "anti-oxidant" bandwagon, yet appease the typical american palate. :rolleyes:

actually it constantly surprises me how so many people can't drink just plain water. they gotta have soda or juice or whatever. i find that strange.
