Manufacturers often call them crisps, not small loaves. If to look at their manufacturing technology, they really ARE the crisps. These thin slices are being baked for a couple seconds only at the spare 130°С, while the regular bread is done after 250°С treatment. One more negative point (the only minus, I would say) from the dietologists’ point of view is the fact of a little bit of sugar and yeast contained. The crisps and regular bread have the same amount of calories (about 300 kcal/100gr) and fat (2-3gr/100gr).
One can eat up the package of small loaves (100gr) at one sitting probably for a dare only, well, and if the mean is fresh baguette, then it’ll make no problem to consume 2 (50gr each) slices of it. I’ll tell you more, it is doubtful whether you’ll limit yourself to 2 of those only. To process crisps your body spends much of energy which means less calories left afterwards.
The small loaves are considered to be diabetic as they contain substances difficult-to-obtain from average food: cellulose (up to 15% contained), vegetable proteins and minerals. Small loaves contain healthy food additives, e.g.: bran, which is the natural absorbent, it easily absorbs and egests any kind of toxins out of your body.
One of the main matters dietologists are still trying to work out is to make a person fell full with no surfeiting. Dry crisps do solve this matter easily: you eat plenty of those getting a bit of calories. That’s why doctors show their gracious toward bread loaves-extruders baked of the "blown-up grain".
"Thin bread-loaves" are being fought by extruders (dietologists thing so) mainly because of les volume, but if the person doesn’t suffer any digestion disorders he can permit himself the ones also. Be sure, any crisps (dry small bread loaves) should be more preferable than regular bread and fresh baguettes. Well, but if you really wish to eat up a sandwich with a slice of sausage then it’d be better to put sausage on the bread crisps rather than on regular one. Still do not forget the whole thing approved by doctors: bread gives your body clear carbohydrates. Thus remember this and do not overeat bread crisps.

With the "Overweight Era" coming, bread immediately was put into all of the "Diet Black Lists". Thus, for the person keeping his/her body fit it makes sense for to look up closely at more efficient grain product – dry small bread loaves.
1. Crispbread or extruders
They are called such a way on behalf on extrusion technology applied while produced. This is how it happens: moist grain gets inserted into the camera of high temperature and pressure. Grain moisture transforms into steam, grains burst from inside and the received mass gets baked into the flat cakes. It’s done now.
As the process takes really short time the ready-made extruders (unlike regular bread) have almost all of useful raw material (I mean grain) qualities. Sufficient amount of Vitamins B, PP, A, E (keep, inter alia, your skin and hair condition fit), microelements K, Ca, Mg, P, Fe are being reserved in. In addition, these loaves have got a lot of cellulose, food fibers which better carbohydrate exchange within your body, ease up toxins removal, improve your intestine functioning, low down cholesterol level and at the expense of above-mentioned help you to control your weight. By the way, high-calorie starch gets destroyed while this way processed. The only shortcoming makes taste. Manufacturers say "It’s neutral", but the reality shows total absence of any taste. I’ll tell you it’s not a big deal as such a tasteless thing will perfectly go on with any sort of cheese, pâté and pastes, vegetables and verdure.
Apart from bran many other useful things are being put into this diet grain foodstuff: vitamins A, E, C, Fe, calcium, beta-carotene, lecithin, sea cabbage, malt extract, wheat grain germs, peas (additional source of proteins).
2. Whole-wheat flour loaves
Wholly grind flour is used to bake them. The grains are grinded together with their rich for cellulose and vegetable protein casings and corcules. Salt, sugar, yeast, preservative and other food industry achievements are not to be added, the only water is. These loaves are to be baked, thus they contain less amount of useful substances than in extruded ones. The loaves look like the carton box carefully cut into rectangles.
