All the positive things of whole grains

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

After the 19 century stone mills for processing grain replaced with modern technology, man has little by little began to exclude from their diet of whole grains, and began to consume increasing amounts of refined, white flour. To make matters worse, out of his diet not only unrefined wheat flour, but a little bit of buckwheat, barley, oats dangerous destroy proper balance of nutrition that is necessary for our health.

Regardless of the price of wheat flour, hard to find bread that is mixed from 100% whole-wheat flour. The vast majority has a ratio of 60:40 or 40:20:20:20 if you mix some types of flour in favor of whites. Therefore, although it is better to buy brown bread or rye or corn, it will still be only partially integrated. Far from it that there is no 100% wholemeal bread, but it will require as a needle in a haystack instead of being easy to obtain in a nearby bakery at a lower price according to price wheat flour.

Perhaps the easiest solution would be to save yourself at home. Arm yourself with patience, to start until you hit ratios that correspond to fully perfect your taste treats. It does not even have to knead too much if you have the breadmaker will do almost all the work for you, a dough you can add spices such as basil, oregano, chives or caraway, pumpkin or olive oil instead of plain flavor, olive or seed pieces.

Unlike bread, pasta has been somewhat easier to find, although it is often only partially made of whole-wheat flour and rice, you will find shelves of our stores across the hill "integral" version, and maybe only one will be an integral, or with flakes and germ, and the other peeled, just not polished. Maybe that is why the quest for 100% integrated and most comprehensive products in specialized stores stop eco food, where you will find a number of integrated products than in ordinary shops.

Trend return whole grains is not so bad, even if it was just a trend. In addition to keep our health, whole grains keep a good line, accelerate metabolism and intestinal function, and thus facilitate digestion. It is in the grain shell is the most fiber, vitamins and minerals vital that reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

The greatest number of fibers that regulate the metabolism of fats and sugars, by limiting the absorption of sugar that we consume other food, is found in shells, and B vitamins in large quantities B1, B6, vitamin E, magnesium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, sodium, sulfur and manganese, zinc and iodine.

The germ, which also removes refining contains many antioxidants that protect cells from deterioration due to the impact of toxins in the environment. Their use is known through five millennium to treat a variety of health problems associated with the activity of free radicals. Germs have fewer calories than seeds, and rich in protein, vitamins, especially vitamin C and minerals and phytochemicals from seeds. If you buy them separately from the seed, or as its own food, pay special attention to the fresh.

Let us remember that whole grains provide a longer feeling of satiety and have a low glycemic index which makes a favorable effect on the work of the pancreas. They are rich in amino acids, for example, contains olive oil, and as it dissolves cholesterol due linolinskoj acid and lecithin.

Whole grains in general act on the health of the whole organism, because it restores the balance in that original form, as they used to consume the people across the planet. Indigestible fiber are what should be our digestion to work properly, except in a grain, fiber can be found in legumes such as beans, green leafy vegetables and the like.

Whole grains will not have to cook longer than normal, especially those that are ready for quick cooking, so you will not lose any time to prepare. Once you get used to their true flavor, you'll be hard to come back later "plain" flavor of the product stored in white flour. I better, because it does not say in vain that the refined white products murderers and 20th causes of many diseases and 21 century.
