White Flour: How Healthy Is It For You?
White flour is made from stripping wheat of everything useful, adding synthetic B vitamins, and bleaching it to remove the milled yellow color and increase the amount of gluten the flour can produce.
The synthetic vitamins that are infused into the flour are toxic to the human body. The flour itself is devoid of the fiber which aids in passing easily through the large intestine. This slow passage gives more time for the useless synthetic vitamins to seep into the body.
A person following a diet that regularly includes eating white flour products, has an increased the risk of developing diabetes. There are many wheat products available that you can use to replace the flour products. But you need to read the product labels carefully because many of the advertised "whole grain" products on the market are actually made with white flour.
How to Eliminate Toxins from White Flour
- Avoid "enriched" flour products because the nutrients have been replaced with coal tar derivatives.
- Avoid white flour products: breads, (check labels of "multigrain" and "wheat" as well), pizza crusts, pasta, bagels, pretzels and more.
- Read labels to select whole grains or sprouted grain flour. Purchase foods from natural food markets online or in your neighborhoods. Whole grains should be soaked or sprouted to avoid irritation to the intestinal wall.
- Reduce your white flour intake to just 2x weekly.
- Regular colon cleansing can help to relieve the symptoms of constipation and reduce the buildup of toxins associated with eating flour.
