Bread With Super Baked In
Your go-to guide on the vitamins and minerals in our 50/50 Vitamin Boost Loaf
1. Bread with super baked in
Kingsmill 50/50 Vitamin Boost has 7 vitamins and Minerals in every slice. It's a source of vitamin D, thiamin, niacin, B6, folic acid, calcium and iron.
- IRON & VITAMIN B6 SUPPORTS YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
- VITAMIN B1 & NIACIN FOR ENERGY RELEASE
- VITAMIN D & CALCIUM FOR HEALTHY BONES AND TEETH
Iron helps to support our immune system. Good sources include meat, beans, nuts, bread, fortified breakfast cereals and most dark-green leafy vegetables. Spinach is a good source too, but because of high levels of oxalic acid not much of it is actually absorbed by the body.
3. Vitamin B6
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is important for keeping our immune system running normally. Sources of Vitamin B6 include poultry, fish, potatoes, chickpeas and bananas.
4. B Vitamins - Thiamin & Niacin
Thiamin (aka Vitamin B1) and Niacin (aka vitamin B3), work together to turn the food we eat into the energy we need. Meat, eggs, fortified breakfast cereals and bread are all good sources.
5. Vitamin D
We need vitamin D for healthy bones and teeth as it helps our bodies to use the calcium from our diets. It's best to get our vitamin D from direct sunlight on our skin, but here in the UK the sun is only strong enough from April to September. So some foods which do provide vitamin D include oily fish like salmon and sardines, red meat, egg yolks and fortified foods like our 50/50 Vitamin Boost.
We need calcium to build and maintain healthy bones and teeth. Dairy foods like milk and cheese are the most common sources of calcium, but you can also get it from vegetables like broccoli and cabbage, soya based foods like tofu, nuts, and anything made with fortified wheat flour.
