Tracking natural bread?

Options
I usually eat bread from a bakery that has no sugar or any artificial ingredients in it. When I track whole wheat bread it shows a high sugar content. So how do I track the natural bread I eat that has no barcode. I'm aware that the bread will have a high carb content and therefore show some sugar but it's a sugar free bread.
Thoughts?

    Bread is a carb that should be avoided.

    Why don't you ask themnfor the nutrition in their bread? They must have ingredients. If they have ingredients they can give you that.

    I'm pretty sure that they are obliged by law to disclose nutrition of products when requested.

    Be gone with your pseudoscience, foul destroyer of choice! (In all seriousness, do you have a link or two about this? I'd like to bread it. <- accidental spelling pun)

    Stick to whole grain if you must. I banish you to the Internet. Google is your friend :)

    I just laughed so hard I think I pulled a muscle so thanks.

    Carbs are fine unless you've got a medical reason to be concerned about them.

    OP -

    Is the nutrition information for the bread you buy available on the bakery's website? I get bread from a local shop as well and they have nutrition information posted on their website for each bread they produce. If it's not on MFP already, I enter it in so I can log it :)

    I've lost 20 pounds and 50% or so of my daily calorie intake has been carbs so I'm gonna disagree with you there.

    Indeed we are....which is why I countered your point of carbs being something to be avoided.

    And don't call me sugar pie.

    Mmm. Cupcakes. Think I'll have one, along with a slice of bread, and still lose weight.

    You could find a recipe for sugar free bread, calculate it in MFP and use that?

    I lost 100 pounds eating home baked, whole grain breads. Perhaps you should rethink this glib statement...and enjoy some bread :D

    Aren't cupcakes and sugar pies full of carbs? Does that make them evil?

    ETA: OP, I agree with those suggesting asking the place where you get them for the nutritional information.
