Minerals in Bread
Minerals are classified as micronutrients, because you don’t need too much of them, but that doesn’t negate their importance. Your body cannot make minerals, so it’s essential you get them all from your food. Minerals don’t contain calories, so they aren’t a direct source of energy.
Some of the minerals found in Bread are: Sodium (302 mg), Potassium (134 mg) and Phosphorus (58 mg).

The best known nutrition fact about iron is that meats and plant foods are rich in iron. More human health problems worldwide are caused by iron deficiency than by lack of any other nutrient. 100 grams of Bread contains 1.4 milligrams of iron, that’s the 8% of the daily recommended value for an adult.
Vegetables, especially green leafy varieties, are generally our richest sources of potassium. But this mineral can also be found in varying amounts in almost all foods. 134 milligrams of potassium can be found on every 100 grams of Bread, the 3% of the total daily recommended potassium intake.
Magnesium is a key mineral in human metabolism. In fact, magnesium is necessary for more than 300 chemical reactions in the human body. In 100 grams of Bread, you can find 14 milligrams of magnesium. It provides the 4% of the daily recommended value for the average adult.
Phosphorus is the second most abundant inorganic element in the human body and is a port of many important compounds, including ribonucleic acid (RNA), deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and sugar phosphates. Phosphate helps to protect blood systemic acid-base balance, and acts as a transport mechanism for energy. 58 milligrams of phosphorus can be found on every 100 grams of Bread, the 6% of the total daily recommended phosphorus intake.
Sodium is needed for muscle contractions, nerve transmissions, maintaining pH balance and hydration. Sodium also regulates the fluid outside of the cells and is needed to pump fluid into the cells as potassium carries by-products out. 100 grams of Bread contains 302 milligrams of sodium, that’s the 20% of the daily recommended value for an adult.
Zinc is used as a cofactor by a number of critical enzymes. In fact, more than 300 zinc-dependent enzymes are currently known. Even a mild dietary deficiency of zinc can have far-reaching health implications. 100 grams of Bread contains 0.35 milligrams of zinc, that’s the 2% of the daily recommended value for an adult.
Copper is a key mineral in many different body systems. It is central to building strong tissue, maintaining blood volume, and producing energy in your cells. 0.07 milligrams of copper can be found on every 100 grams of Bread, the 4% of the total daily recommended copper intake.
A very low intake of manganese is associated with poor bone formation. This phenomenon is thought to be due to altered formation of the protein matrix that keeps minerals like calcium in place. 0.2 milligrams of manganese can be found on every 100 grams of Bread, the 10% of the total daily recommended manganese intake.
Selenium is one of many important dietary minerals, and we require a small amount of selenium in our daily diet. Selenium is incorporated in a small cluster of important proteins (called “selenoproteins”), each of which plays a critical role in our health. In 100 grams of Bread, you can find 12.1 micrograms of selenium. It provides the 17% of the daily recommended value for the average adult.
