 Wheat food

Despite the fact that we constantly hear that white flour (maida) or the products made from it are hazardous for our health, the majority of us are unaware of the reasons why. White flour, refined sugar, and soft drinks are all readily available and largely impossible to avoid when eating processed foods. Because refined wheat is both fatty and the main factor in many ailments, it is bad for the body.

Food producers deftly separate the bran and germ (wheat germ) from the endosperm of the wheat, which is used to make white flour (wheat bran). Because of this, diets made from refined grains, sugar, and oils deplete the body's stores of vitamins and minerals by taking nutrients from it to aid in their own absorption. Even though the label on the package of white flour you purchase says "enriched flour," this merely implies that four to five vitamins have been added, while ten have been taken out, meaning they were lost during processing. Given that wheat flour has a higher glycemic index (GI) than unprocessed and low GI foods—71—it contains twice as many calories.

Wheat flour has negative consequences because refined flour has a high GI and quickly releases sugar into the system. When processed and refined foods are consumed often, this triggers a rapid insulin response that, over time, leads to inflammation, insulin sensitivity, and eventually type II diabetes.

Products made with fried wheat flour are the worst. The body consumes too much-refined sugar and fat when foods made with wheat flour are fried, including samosas, chaklis, noodles, kachori, and pasta. This interferes with your body's natural metabolic rate and results in inflammation, hyperinsulinism, and insulin resistance, which in turn causes heart conditions, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, and even cancer.

In addition to raising cholesterol levels and hardening the arteries, wheat flour consumption also alters blood sugar levels, results in mood swings and irritability, and heightens appetites. A fatty liver, high blood pressure, and atherosclerosis are also consequences.

Despite being unhealthy, meals produced with wheat flour are seductive and difficult to stop eating. As a result, they should only be used occasionally and in moderation. Ensure that your diet is balanced, full of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, and contains all the nutrients you need. For a healthier lifestyle, one can also choose whole wheat flour instead of refined. Walking is a good exercise choice that should be done for at least 30 to 40 minutes each day.
