BrandedUp in partnership with
Gardenia has been around for most of our lives and Filipinos have grown attached to it in all forms: as a breakfast staple, as our favorite merienda go-to, or even as a midnight snack partner we can easily grab from our pantry. But what makes Gardenia even better as a bread brand is the fact that it assures us of overall health benefits just by adding it to our diet.
With its exciting line of high fiber whole wheat bread, you can feel better, lighter, and healthier with more fiber in your body! Made from 100% wholemeal flour, Gardenia’s High Fiber Whole Wheat Bread, High Fiber Wheat Raisin Loaf, and High Fiber Wheat Cranberry Loaf are all created using whole wheat to keep our gut healthy.
Healthy gut for a healthy body
Did you know that our gut’s main role is to absorb nutrients to support our body’s functions? The gut also houses about 70 percent of our immune system and it’s home to a community of microbiota or “good bacteria”. And with dietary fiber as its crucial partner, our gut is able to function at its best.
For instance, the consumption of dietary fiber found in Gardenia’s whole wheat bread allows the expansion of a good bacterial population in our tummy. This makes this powerful duo—dietary fiber and good gut bacteria—a big help in boosting our immune system.
Moreover, meeting our daily dietary fiber needs can aid in our body’s defenses against infections and illnesses such as diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disorders, and cancers.
All these benefits are sure to be enjoyed on top of improving your digestion and bowel movement that comes with the regular intake of dietary fiber and water.
Wheat Bread that’s both yummy and best for health
Gardenia’s assortment of whole wheat bread offers variety in flavor and in nutritive value. This allows you to get the full benefits of fiber without compromising taste. Gardenia’s High Fiber Whole Wheat Bread has the goodness of all-natural wholemeal flour that is made enjoyable with the natural taste of real honey. Being high in fiber, it gives our body 20 percent of our daily fiber needs. Its high fiber content also allows for slower digestion and gives you energy throughout the day, perfect for those watching their weight. No more missing out on the delicious meal options you can make with bread because with Gardenia, healthy indulgence will not seem so impossible at all.
The High Fiber Wheat Raisin Loaf, on the other hand, offers twice the goodness as it has both the fiber benefits of whole wheat flour and California raisins. This combination can give you 29 percent of your daily fiber needs in just one slice! Plus, the delicious taste and nutritional benefits of the juicy raisins make it an even better treat! It has Vitamins B1, B2, and B3 that can boost your energy.
Lastly, the High Fiber Wheat Cranberry Loaf is the only loaf on the market with the benefits of whole wheat and cranberries, giving 22 percent of your daily fiber needs. Not only that, you’ll love the luscious tangy taste of cranberries, which are also a good source of antioxidants and phytonutrients.
Aside from the benefits of fiber, Gardenia’s wheat bread options offer a unique and superior nutritional profile that makes reading the nutrition facts on the label so worthwhile. You’ll see that it is cholesterol-free and is also packed with vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A, Calcium, Iron, and Folate to promote overall health and immunity.

Its line of freshly baked High Fiber Whole Wheat Bread contains at least six grams of fiber, one of the highest in the local bread market—making it an effortless way of increasing your fiber intake every day.
