Bread is easily one of the most beloved foods out there, but, unfortunately, it isn't the healthiest. Luckily, there are healthier versions of it, such as multigrain bread. As for what makes a 6-grain bread, specifically, so unique, it all comes down to, well, the six grains.

The six grains may vary from recipe to recipe, but typically, they include oats, wheat, corn, millet, rye, flaxseed, and sesame seeds. Sometimes, a recipe includes quinoa or barley in place of one of the other grains. Whatever the exact configuration is, a 6-grain bread makes for a hearty and satisfying alternative to white bread.

Not only can it taste delicious, but eating multigrain bread comes with a plethora of benefits, such as being high in protein and fiber, as well as other vitamins and nutrients, including magnesium, iron, zinc, and antioxidants. So, now that you know how beneficial 6-grain bread is, what should you make with it?
