Whole wheat bread stick is a pencil-shaped stick of bread that has been rolled and baked to a crispy texture and seasoned lightly, usually with a little salt. Here plain flour is replaced with whole wheat flour, which adds more crunch and fibre to the bread sticks. Today, whole wheat bread sticks come in several types including super thin crispy types that are often served as appetisers in restaurants as well as the larger types often served with spaghetti and dips. Far from the simplistic first designs, contemporary versions are made with different types of flour and may be seasoned with a variety of spices. In addition, the crisp exterior today may include a little extra taste, courtesy of sesame seeds baked into the crust. While whole wheat bread sticks are relatively easy to make, many people prefer to purchase them for home consumption from bakeries and supermarkets. Many delicatessens bake them fresh daily, while grocery stores often carry several brands.
How to select
While purchasing from the market, check for the freshness of the bread sticks by having a look at the expiry dates and seal of the packet.
• Whole wheat bread sticks can be used as a snack or an appetiser. They are commonly served with soups, and are a part of the breakfast bread basket, which also contains dinner rolls etc.

How to store
Store bread sticks in airtight containers away from humidity and moisture. They are best stored up to one week.
Since the plain flour is replaced with whole wheat flour, these bread sticks serve as a good source of fibre and carbohydrates.
