In addition, fresh bread is also quite filling and quite fitting combined with drinks such as tea, coffee, or milk.
Fresh bread is also often mixed with various toppings such as butter, milk, messes, jam, and others, which makes it taste even more delicious.
But many do not know, too often eating fresh bread is also not good for health.
Behind the practicality and enjoyment of fresh bread it can have a bad impact on the body, if consumed too much.
It can even cause quite serious illness.
Studies in 2018, for example, mentioned that the habit of eating bread is closely related to the increased risk of hypertension.
The study, published in the journal Nutrients, looked at 2,011 adults with an average age of 37.1 years. The results showed that white bread contributes to increasing blood pressure.
The findings showed that eating one slice of white bread once or more a week was 1.39 times more likely to have blood pressure.
A similar study was conducted in 2014, in which eating two or more servings of bread per three days was also associated with obesity.
For those who have a history of hypertension, it's good to reduce the consumption of fresh bread.

In addition, some experts also advise against eating fresh bread with butter, sweetened condensed milk, and granulated sugar.
Launching Pop Grid, Tuesday (11/16/2021), the three ingredients are related to long-term effects on health that will be disastrous for those who consume.

Moreover, butter is a food made from animal fats.
Consuming butter in excess can increase cholesterol levels in the body and increase the risk of various diseases, such as diabetes, stroke, to heart attack.
For sweetened condensed milk and granulated sugar, experts recommend reducing the combination of fresh bread with these toppings.
Sweetened condensed milk has a fairly high sugar content. The Food and Drug Administration (BPOM) in 2018 also appealed to the public about the dangers of sweetened condensed milk.
At that time BPOM highlighted the content in sweetened condensed milk, where the milk content is much less than the sugar content.
Milk contained in these ingredients has also been compressed before adding sugar as an additional sweetener.
"The water is removed, evaporated, condensed, viscosed, then added sugar. So the fat is concentrated continuously plus sugar," he told BPOM Penny K Lukito, July 9, 2018.
