Just read an article that tells the secrets about bleached, white flour that most people probably didn’t know.
- Not only is white flour not healthy for you, it is bad for you.
- Refining food destroys nutrients, so white flour is just sugar — empty calories.
- The process of bleaching flour using chlorine oxide produces alloxan, which is a dangerous toxin.
- Alloxan has been found to cause diabetes and free radical damages to the DNA of healthy laboratory animals.
- Chemicals are always used in the process of refining food but not included in the ingredient labels.
- We don’t know the long-term effects of ingesting these chemicals.
- We should strive to eat more unprocessed foods, such as unbleached, whole, and organic grain.
