Whether you're eating white bread or even the wholemeal seeded kind, bread simply isn't the healthiest thing you can put on the plate. It's not as bad as a meal consisting entirely of chocolate biscuits (trust me, I've been there), but scientists are looking to make one of our diet staples a bit healthier.

In the UK, scientists are removing small quantities of the wheat germ and adding in other grains such as quinoa, teff, sorghum, and millet. Green peas and chickpeas are also being considered as they'd add in some extra protein.

In the past, scientists had tried to add bran to the flavour of white bread, but bread enjoyers couldn't quite get over the change in taste and texture.

Thanks, BBC.
