By Crystal MUNOZ bread is one of the most important meals in our food, not that it is very nutritious but because it is consumed by habit and it is almost impossible to remove from the diet since it is addictive. Throughout my career as a nutrition consultant, I’ve realized that simple people and they will not simply stop eating bread as much wanting to lose weight or control your sugar levels. Without hesitation The Journal of Educational Research explained all about the problem. scussion. That’s why I want to clarify several important points about the flours and bread. First, the bread usually is made of wheat flour and there are two types: white flour and whole wheat flour (which is Brown and is healthier). White flour, known as flour enriched, is the opposite of what the name indicates and is the worst scam that exists! That is enriched flour? It is wheat flour that has been so processed that it has no nutritional value. Get more background information with materials from Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. Wheat is a very healthy grain since it has around thirty nutrients including iron and fiber, which helps the flour does not stick in the intestine and quit on the stool. When wheat is milled and processed into flour enriched, remove you more than half of the nutrients and fiber so that the bread is soft and white and to make matters worse they added sugar! Therefore, that every day more people are opting for change to whole-grain bread. But unfortunately, many big bread companies do not want to work double instead of preparing enriched on the one hand, or wholemeal flour on the other, what they do is put him dye to white bread, add a little artificial fiber and sell it to you as whole wheat bread when isn’t it.
This imitation bread is equal or worse to white bread however sell it you more expensive because it is healthier. This is the reason why there is to learn to read the nutritional labels on food. Do not let you continue cheating! True whole-grain bread will have as a main ingredient whole wheat, or entire wheat flour. In addition, will not have sugar or caramel coloring is dark of itself and you don’t need to paint it. And will be higher in iron and fiber, and low in carbohydrates.
A third type of bread, which is even higher than the integral exists and which is called Multigrain. This bread, provided it is truly multi-grain and white bread not caramel color is very nutritious because it is lower in calories and carbohydrates and contains oats and other grains other than wheat. It is harder to find but it is worth to get it since it is delicious and is the most recommend for diabetics or people with overweight. So do not already buy more lies from the big companies and learn to read labels, I promise that you will be amazed!
