Rye Bread, The Best Kind Of Bread For Constipation
Any kind of whole wheat bread can aid constipation because of its fiber, but rye bread reigns supreme. In 2010, a study in The Journal of Nutrition found that rye bread is better at treating constipation than other whole breads. It’s even better than some laxatives.
During another study, participants ate 240 grams of rye bread each day (about seven and a half slices). After three weeks, the time in between stools decreased by 23%. But you only need two slices of rye to gain 15% of your daily recommended fiber.
