The only thing better than a freshly baked bagel is a freshly baked bialy. “A bialy is actually more closely related to an English muffin than a bagel,” said Evan Giniger, co-owner of Kossar’s, a legendary Jewish bakery in New York City that’s been around since 1936.
Similarly one may ask, does a bialy have less calories than a bagel?
A bialy is like a bagel, but smaller, is baked rather than boiled and instead of a hole, has a depression filled with a little mixture of fresh soft onions. Bialys have less calories than bagels – 240 vs 300 calories according to the H&H website, though some websites say the calorie count is even lower.
Subsequently, question is, are bagels better for you than bread? Compared to bread, bagels are more commonly topped with higher calorie foods. However, bagels themselves are low in saturated fats, but are also typically low in fiber. Bran or whole wheat types of bagels are a bit healthier, with more fiber than the standard enriched white flour bagel.
Just so, what bagels are the healthiest?
In terms of the healthiest bagels, plain may seem like the obvious choice but Taub-Dix notes that seed-rich sesame and everything bagels contain heart-healthy fat and fiber. Rye, pumpernickel, oat and whole-wheat are also good choices.
How many calories are in a plain bialy?
According to the country’s leader purveyor of bagels, Dunkin’ Donuts, a Pepper Jack Supreme Bagel can clock in at over 400 calories and a plain at 310, compared to a bialy’s more modest 170 calories.
