Pandesal and sliced bread

Are you consuming the right amount of bread according to your meal plan?
In your meal plan, 1 portion starch = 1/2 cup rice or 2 slices white bread or 3 pieces small pandesal
However, since we have different varieties/sizes of pandesal and sliced bread in the market nowadays, I think there's a need to clarify the amount that you should use for 1 portion of starch.
Here's a start. 1 portion of starch is equivalent to:
3 pieces pandesal (worth 2 pesos each at a local bakery)
1 piece (35 grams) Gardenia Pandesal
1 piece (large) Pan de Manila Pandesal
1-2 slices Gardenia sliced bread (white/wheat)
1-2 slices Julie's Bakery sliced bread
Can you share what brand of bread you're using?
