Feeling Fuller Longer—We’ll Toast to That!


If you’re a fan of toast at breakfast, make yours a slice of rye.

Update: Our food editor, Karen, noted that this study was based on the dark, dense whole grain ryes that are common in Europe. Most of the US ryes are
actually made from wheat flour, so to get the benefits, be sure to check the label before you buy!
