Hello @charliewp, Welcome to Connect. What a great topic. Thanks for starting a discussion. I do try and limit the amount of bread I eat but that's mainly a choice for lowering the carbs I eat. One of my favorite breads is Ezekiel Bread which is 100% sprouted grain or so they say. You will notice we changed your discussion title a little to better describe your question and bring in other members. Here are a couple of articles that may help provide more information for you.
For myself, it's always been about how the bread tastes and not so much how better one type is for you than another type. That was before I started on making some lifestyle changes and trying to eat healthier. Hopefully some members with more experience and knowledge to share will join the discussion and share what they know. Have you done any other research on the topic other than conversations with your friend?
