White Pita Bread Fiber Content???

Is that possible? According to the Nutrition Facts on New Jasmine Bakery's white pita bread, each piece has 5g of fiber. I mean an apple only has 3-5 grams of fiber.

  1. There are certainly different white flours with different amounts of fiber in them. King Arthur, for example, makes a White Whole Wheat Flour that has a significant amount of fiber and could easily be used to produce a pita bread. See, Additional fiber may also come from other ingredients in the product.

    Of much greater importance, how does it taste?

      but it would say whole wheat flour on the ingredients list.

        Maybe, but the point is there are white flours that have more fiber than others. Most unbleached flours do, as do others that are similarly less processed. BTW - What does the ingredient list say?

        It taste great. New Jasime Bakery is the best. That is saying a lot with all the bakeries in Dearborn, MI.

            I'm not sure if they export to other states, but they do have a website where they sell products. The ingredients read as follows:
            flour and whwat flour
            niacin benozoperoxide
            thiamine monostrate
            ascorbic acid
            alpha amylase
            riboflavin folur acid

              I think this list is missing some parentheses. The ingredients before "water" are the ingredients in enriched whole wheat flour. I'm guessing it should say: flour (wholewheat flour, niacin benozoperoxide, iron, thiamine monostrate, ascorbic acid, alpha amylase, riboflavin, folic acid), water sugar, yeast salt.
