Many brands of whole-grain bread have slightly different calorie counts, due to minor differences in each manufacturer's recipe. One standard, 26-gram slice of whole-grain bread contains 69 calories, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference. A large, 41-gram slice has 109 calories.
