how to make pita bread good for you

As far as the nutritional value of pita bread goes, it is a mixed picture. Pita bread has both healthy as well as unhealthy attributes in its nutritional value. As far as calories go, one large pita (60 grams) comes with 165 calories. While that may not seem like an awful lot, just remember that when you eat the whole pita sandwich, you will be worsening the calorie count by adding filling and sauce.

The same serving of pita bread is very low in fat, with only 1 gram being present. There are also doses of iron and calcium in such a serving of pita bread. The distinct downside of pita bread is the enormous content of sodium. The same serving size of 60 grams subjects your body to 322 milligrams of salt.
