High fibre bread you can buy in the UK (our top 5)

Published by Finn Hayden

Fibre is an essential nutrient which helps our bodies with a number of functions, but many of us don't get enough of it in our diets. Luckily, there are lots of foods out there which are high in fibre, and we've written about a few of them such as high fibre breakfast cereal.

Bread is usually a good source of fibre too, but some types of bread are especially high in fibre. We wanted to round up the highest fibre bread that you can buy in the UK, let's get into it:

Warburtons Plant Power

We mentioned in a previous guide that because the Warburtons Plant Power loaf is packed with pulses and seeds, it's high in protein. But pulses and seeds are also excellent sources of fibre, which means this Plant Power loaf is packed with fibre. Each slice of this loaf contains 3.5g of fibre, a really good amount. Plus, we think this loaf tastes delicious. Learn more and buy it here -

Schneider Brot Whole Grain Rye

Rye bread definitely tastes quite a bit different to what we're used to here in the UK, but it's a popular type of bread in other parts of the world, and if you're looking for a good amount of fibre in your bread then rye bread is a great option. Schneider Brot Whole Grain Rye bread is probably the most popular type of rye bread that you can buy in the UK, and we really like it. We also love that it's high in fibre, with 7.7g of fibre per 100g of bread. That means in each loaf you'll get almost 40g of fibre. Learn more and buy it here -

Warburtons Seeded Batch

Seeds are packed with fibre, so any loaf of bread which contains different types of seeds usually contains a good amount of fibre. That's exactly the case with the Warburtons Seeded Batch loaf, which contains 5 different types of seeds. In every loaf of this seeded batch, you'll find linseed, millet, poppy, sesame, and sunflower seeds. Each slice of this bread contains 2.7g of fibre, which is a great amount to get in 1 slice. We also really loved the taste of it, especially when it's toasted. Learn more and buy it here -

BFree brown seeded loaf

All of the BFree loaves are totally gluten-free, which means instead of being made with wheat, they're made with ingredients like brown rice flour and sunflower seeds. This means that this bread is actually very high in fibre, with 4g per slice. The texture of this bread is a little different from bread made using wheat, but we actually really like the taste.

Warburtons The Big 21

The Big 21 is so-called because it contains a whopping 21 different types of seeds and grains, and that means this bread is packed with fibre. Every loaf is packed with seeds such as brown linseed and pumpkin seeds, and each slice of this bread contains 3.2g of fibre. If you like a seeded loaf then it doesn't get much better than this, and the fibre content is great. Learn more and buy it here -
