A whisper to commercial bread fashion in Malaysia
I feel so good to have wholemeal bread for breakfast after having the sinful white bread for weeks. I don't think the bread is expensive in Malaysia however the variations are quite limited compare to Australia. Nowadays, most of the Malaysian are still preferred white bread than other bread type. One of the main reason is the culture. People in Malaysia are so used to eat white bread. Huge populations of us grown up with white bread. Secondly, the texture of white bread is much more better than wholemeal. Even people debate about the price and flavour between Massimo and Gardenia. Which one cheaper? Which one softer? Which one tastier? The other reason is the price.
My home-made yummy egg sandwich. I am good in making sandwich - tasty and pretty. No joke.
Somehow it is good to see there are at least a few brands of wholemeal bread on the supermarket shelves. Hope to see there will be more variations coming out in a few years time. I hope all Malaysian become more health concious and eat healthy. Urkk, I know mamak and street food are really attractive and tempting.
Apparently there is Mission's wholemeal wrap but there is none/not sold on the shelves. I miss my multigrain wrap.
Personally, I am not that fussy about bread but I prefer not to eat white bread if I have a choice. It is not as healthier compare to wholemeal, multigrain etc. For me, white bread is just a staple that full of simple carbohydrate that fill up your hunger with little fibre. It is not a good source of fibre to meet daily needs. It does contain valuable nutrients because most of them are restored with nutrients by law. Besides, people with diabetes and on diet should avoid white bread. Therefore, wholemeal and multigrain type breads are better and healthier to choose.
