On the x-ray thread a few people mentioned trying to find a HFCS free commercial bread.
We buy Natures Own 100% Whole Wheat.
Of course it isn't as healthy as it could be, but I thought I'd mention it because it is readily available at an ordinary supermarket.

Dur! I just realized where I posted this. Feel free to move!

high fructose corn syrup

We buy Barowsky's organic whole wheat bread.

Or Matthew's (not organic, but whole wheat.)

Oh I see! That goes to show me how much I've been looking at labels lately. I'll be sure to look now. I am about to start a gluten and dairy free diet to see if it helps with some health problems that I have been having to I guess I better start reading those labels!

avoid HFCS at all costs. it's VERY unhealthy.

Pepperidge Farm!!! they have an awesome new line...german dark wheat is my fave...its got sunflower seeds or something in it, but the kiddos hate it. they have a whole wheat, and a 7 grain (or is it 9?). i usually get the 7 grain.

here's the thing...they have 2 versions, so make sure you look for the one marked "Natural". it has no HFCS. they use molasses and raisin juice. its under $3, too, which is a huge plus for me!

Matthews is a nationally available brand that does not have hfcs. I have been buying that on and off for about 20 years. (It not organic)

We're near Richmond. Ukrops grocery stores carry Prairie Grain breads, they're made by a bakery in Midlothian and they have very nice, short, natural ingredient lists.
I've also seen their bread in a local organic market. Not sure if their distribution area stretches out to Ferrum, but the info might be useful to other people in Central VA!
