Let’s talk about socalled “healthy whole grains.” Eating whole grains is a widespread diet recommendation, but for what reason?
Whole wheat bread, for example, is made from whole wheat flour, not refined flour. But, neither type of flour has much fiber, vitamins, phytonutrients, minerals, or protein. Whole grains also contain phytic acid, which blocks the absorption of minerals.
The majority of studies on grains compare whole grains to refined grains. Many people already know whole grains are healthier than refined grains. So, why aren’t we comparing the effects of consuming whole grains vs. not consuming whole grains or refined grains?
Aren't whole grains hearthealthy? The Cochrane group evaluated nine randomcontrolled trials and came to the conclusion that there isn’t enough evidence to say that consuming whole grains will reduce your risk of heart disease.
However, foods without grains are beneficial for your heart, liver, arteries, and blood sugar levels. Learn more about these foods in my other videos.
