(ORDO NEWS) — For many years, whole wheat has been an essential part of the human diet. Wheat flour products are among the most popular in the world. In every kitchen you will find bread, pasta or wheat flour.
Whole wheat contains vitamin E and B vitamins (B1, B2, B6, B3, B9), as well as fiber, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium.
Nutritionist Abeer Abu Reilly spoke about the main health benefits of whole grain bread.
Whole grain bread contains a high percentage of dietary fiber, which increases the feeling of satiety and satisfies hunger for a long time.
The fight against diabetes
Whole grain bread breaks down in the stomach more slowly than white bread. It does not drastically increase blood sugar levels and is therefore considered a suitable product for diabetics.
Reduces the risk of developing cancer
Dietary fiber contained in whole grain bread helps to eliminate toxins from the body, stimulating the bowel movement. This reduces the risk of developing certain types of cancer, such as colon and rectal cancer.
Beneficial for patients with peptic ulcer
Experts recommend eating plenty of fiber, which helps control stomach acid production. Whole-grain bread is considered beneficial for treating stomach ulcers if it is eaten as part of a healthy and balanced diet and does not contain substances that aggravate the disease.
Reduces cholesterol levels
Whole-grain bread, rich in fiber, lowers “bad” cholesterol and raises “good” cholesterol, which reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
Whole grain and white bread have the same number of calories. One slice (30 grams) contains 80 calories, but whole grain bread, unlike white bread, is high in fiber, vitamins and minerals.
