The average commercial white bread is given a glycemic index score of seventy-three whereas the average commercial wheat bread is given a score of sixty-nine. So yes, technically whole wheat bread is better than white bread but it is only marginally better and will still cause substantial rises in blood sugar as it is right on the border of being considered high-glycemic. For a reference point, carbohydrate sources such as broccoli, kale, cauliflower, tomato, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, and lettuces have Glycemic Index scores that are less than twenty. Do not eat gluten-free versions of bread, pasta, crackers, and cereals: You may be wondering if the gluten-free versions of these foods are acceptable to consume while trying to manage or prevent gestational diabetes and the short answer is no. Gluten-free breads, pastas, crackers, and convenience foods are processed with replacement flours such as potato starch and tapioca starch. Unfortunately, these starches raise your blood sugar even more than typical gluten-containing wheat flours found in regular breads, pastas, and crackers. Even though these items are technically gluten-free, they are not Whole Pregnancy approved as they will only do a disservice to one who is trying to combat gestational diabetes and/or weight gain.
