The brands of white breads and wheat breads may be different, but in 
general, even though white bread may be fortified with vitamins and some 
minerals, wheat bread is more nutritious. It usually contains more protein 
and always contains more fiber than white bread. Mold in bread does not 
cause cancer, although white bread may contain a mold inhibitor that may 
not be present in all wheat breads.
