Wheat bread has many positive benefits, but there are options if a consumer needs to avoid it. Several other grains offer comparable nutrition and fibre. Most of these can be found ready made at stores, while some, like gluten-free bread mixes, will require mixing oil, egg and usually cider vinegar.

Gluten-Free Options

Many gluten-free breads are made with rice flour, garbanzo bean flour, teff or montina--a flour made from Indian rice grass native to Montana. Pre-prepared gluten-free bread is also an option.

Low-Carb Alternatives

Many low-carb wraps can be used in lieu of wheat bread. These are usually made with soy flour or almond meal and can cost significantly more than traditional wheat breads.

Whole Grain Options

Rye bread is a good source of fibre that can help you feel full longer. That's a benefit if you are watching your weight according to the website the World's Healthiest Foods. Consumption of rye bread does not spike your blood sugar as sharply as consumption of wheat bread. Breads made with spelt are another whole-grain alternative to wheat. Spelt has more nutrients than wheat. On the down side, neither rye or spelt is gluten-free.
