But that doesn't change the fact that white bread is just flat out bad for you and a waste of precious calories.  Not having a wheat germ lectin doesn't make it a ok food to have

White wheat bread won't be totally lectin free, just less than whole wheat.

no, white bread is junk, imo it is the same as a candy bar, that is how it reacts in the body.  With all the other types of non-wheat whole grain breads out there, there is no reason to eat white bread

True, white bread has no nutritional value.  Just like white sugar, which is also A-neutral.

I don't think it is the same as a candy bar, though, which could contain several avoids as well as being nutrient devoid.  If the sandwich contains a beneficial filling-high quality peanut butter, perhaps--it would tip the scales in favor of the sandwich.

Better still, if you live near a HFS that has a bakery, you could browse around and see if they offer white spelt bread. Or white spelt flour so you can bake your own.   :)Home baked is probably best if you need to be very strict, because a lot of commercial breads use unspecified 'dough conditioners' and such that might be avoids.

LR4YT is a wonderful book and is the primary book that most of us use, since the lists are current (except for the occasional misprint), secretor status is covered, lifestyle and stress issues are dealt with, exercises and supplements, also.

Wheat germ, wheat bran, and whole wheat the the type A secretor wheat avoids.  

Please make sure there are no other avoids, 'commercial' white/wheat breads tend to contain alot of avoids, despite the fact that the wheat germ being removed.

thanks y'all. Unfortunately I have no control over my young adult daughter's diet especially since she doesn't live with me. I can only pass on the warnings.

She may like Ezekiel 4.9 bread for sandwiches, it is compliant for blood type A's and makes a suitable and substantial whole grain sandwich bread with somewhat of a nutty flavor and whole grain texture.

Many commercial grocery stores, along with natural food stores carry it in the freezer of the 'natural foods' section of the store.

I agree w/ you Lola. While it may not be the best she can eat, it's better than the whole wheat, especially since Pat doesn't have control over her diet. She'd prob be a lot more likely to eat white bread than something that is foreign to her. I've been trying to get my A husband off whole wheat bread and it's a really tough battle!! Would be better for him if he'd go w/ something that is beneficial for him, but he really doesn't like homemade bread, so for me, I'd rather see him eating the white stuff, sad as it still is.  :-/

My son will only eat white bread.  I tried to get him to eat spelt since thatís OK for me but it is so dry it doesnít hold up for a quick sandwich.  Young people arenít going to bother and Iíd rather see him make a sandwich of healthy insides than grabbing fast food.  He does like the Amish spelt noodles, so we can enjoy that together.  Heís B sec & Iím a nonnie.

I donít know how old your daughter is, but my son is 22.  From the time they are in their pre-teens, they eat more and more with their friends and want to fit in.

So since it is a neutral for your A daughter & my B son, I donít see a problem with letting her eat it.
