Take Two: Whole Wheat English Muffin & Whole Wheat Bagel

Take Two: Whole Wheat English Muffin & Whole Wheat Bagel

Randy Mayor

While similar in fat, iron, and sodium, whole wheat English muffins and bagels offer more zinc, magnesium, and vitamin E than their refined counterparts. For comparison’s sake, even when downsized to a half, the dense and chewy bagel packs about 40 more calories per serving than an entire muffin, but it provides a bit more fiber and protein, which help you feel full.
