I didn't look up the info on this. But I know when I am in the store I usually check to see the first ingredient. Some "wheat breads" have enriched flour as the first ingredient, and I put those back. I make sure it has WHEAT FLOUR, or WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR as the first ingredient. I found that Aunt Millies Heathy request WHITE actually does. So I figure it's better than a lot of others out there. Yes maybe it's not as good as others either.

Never heard of it, but I looked it up. One problem I see: holy COW that stuff as a lot of sodium in it!

What are you defining as healthy? It is likely a healthier option that regular enriched white bread. But not as healthy as true whole wheat bread. It's just something to work into your diet. I see nothing wrong with this sort of thing as a way to improve your diet over time. I can't abide whole wheat bread as a rule (can't stand the texture) but honey wheats or white wheats are better choices than your average pack of white bread.

Here's a good guide on whether or not what you've got in your hand is really whole grain:

Healthy or not?
It's whole grain...but its also white. Not sure to count it as healthy.
