Default toasting bread

When you toast the bread, does it alter the nutritional value? I have read that it reduces the carbs in the bread.

Do you remember where you read this? Cooking in most cases increases the usable carb count as it breaks down any bonds that were strong enough to endure the human digestive system. So in short, no, it won't reduce the carb count by any appreciable amount if at all.

What you in fact read was, something along these lines...(I've come across people that have read the info incorrectly before, through no fault of their own but because nutritional values are based on weight)...


100g of bread has less carbs than 100g of toast which leads people to believe that toast is therefore lower in carbs which it is per 100g, however, one slice of bread has the exact same amount of carbs in it before it has been toasted as it does after it has been toasted...though, after toasting, it will weight less, due to a percentage of water weight having been cooked out to get the end result of toast.

So, go by the nutritional values on the packet of bread, and use them for both untoasted and toasted.
