Would you like to add more fiber to your diet? Post your questions or comments here.
Would just like to encourage Hy-Vee to increase the fiber content of their bakery products.  The "wheat" hamburger buns have 0 fiber. If they really want to push good nutrition, there is no reaso

If they really want to push good nutrition, there is no reason why at least some of the bakery products couldn't have 4 or 5 grams of fiber per serving.

Most products that are labeled wheat will have a majority of white flour with a blend of wheat flour in the dough. When looking for bread, be sure to read the labels carefully. "Made with whole grains" means that a portion of the flour was whole grain. "100% whole grain" means that all of the flour was whole wheat flour. 100% whole wheat sandwich breads will only have about 2-3 grams of fiber per slice. The double fiber will be 4-6 and it will be a very dense bread with more of a "nutty" flavor. Another good rule to follow is to check the ingredient list and you will want that 1st ingredient listed to be whole wheat flour.

Many of the bakery products are special sweet treats and should be eaten in moderation. The white flour gives that light, sweet texture that everyone loves. If you are looking for some higher fiber bakery products I encourage you to try the Baking Stone 100% Honey Whole Grain and Seed bread. This is a great tasting bread that is made with 100% whole grains and has 3 grams of fiber per serving. I have seen some stores offer a whole wheat muffin product, but this would not be consistent with all Hy-Vee stores. Talk with you local dietitian about other higher fiber options within your store. Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions.  

High Fiber Options-Can we get a high fiber bagel for under 200 calories again?

I would like to applaud Hy-Vee for bringing us The Fiber Gourmet products in the Organic section. The half-calorie chips offer crunch, low calories and plenty of fiber for those of us trying to get more into our diets. Can Hy-Vee find and stock a high fiber (but not so high calorie) bagel? There was one that the company discontinued making and no other company has stepped up to the plate for this type of offering in the store. We make do with the Fiber Gourmet options, Mission Carb Balance tortillas and fresh produce..but I still crave a nice big bagel that doesn't make a big hole in my dietary goals for the day.
Thanks! Kim

Bagels are very dense and it's this feature that leads to a higher calorie and carbohydrate content. The best option that is available right now on the shelves is the 100% whole grain mini-bagels. They are more appropriate in portion size for those who are looking for a great tasting bagel but desire a lower-calorie and/or lower-carbohydrate options.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
