Whole-grain or wholewheat options are healthiest, but you can certainly indulge once in awhile.
A brioche bun is light and fluffy, thanks to its eggs and butter; a 110- gram bun has 14 grams of fat. An indulgent choice? Yep. Should that stop you? Nah. Pairs perfectly with delicate patties like salmon.
Hold up well under the messiest burgers. Ciabatta will really help you carboload, with 54 grams of carbs per 100 grams.
Many gluten-free brands are made with a variety of whole grains, like brown rice and sorghum.
A softer bun with great texture, it’s also one of the more flavourful options, thanks to its onion flecks. Goes well with a veggie burger.
Made from refined flours, these lose a lot of nutrition during the refining process. Add back nutrients with fresh veggie toppings.
These trendy buns are just like salty European soft pretzels – great for a hit of electrolytes preor post- run. But be warned, they’re higher in kilojoules: 1 045 for 85 grams.
The seeds contain copper, which works with iron to create red blood cells. A very sturdy bun.
The fermented dough is packed full of good bacteria, which may make this bread easier to digest.
