WHOLE GRAIN - WHEAT
According to studies Indians are 3 times more likely to have heart disease as compared to other Asians. Are we just born with unlucky genes? Not really. What we eat and our lifestyle account for 40 per cent to 80 per cent of our health risks.
Wheat is nutritious and particularly rich in protein and various vitamins and minerals. The standard industry usage of wheat is in the form of refined flour which is a 60 percent extraction. When wheat is refined the bran and germ are removed, along with all their nutrients. The 40 percent that is removed contains half of all the fiber, vitamins and minerals of wheat. Products made from whole wheat are recommended because they still possess the natural and nutritious goodness of wheat. A serving of wheat provides 73 grams of carbohydrates about 12 grams of fiber, 14 grams of proteins and no more than 2 grams of fat.
In general, whole grain flours spoil faster than intact grains, because their protective bran layer has been broken up and oxygen can reach all parts of the grain. If stored properly in airtight containers, most whole grain flours will keep for 1 to 3 months on a cool, dry pantry shelf or 2 to 6 months in the freezer.
HOW TO CONSUME
Whole Wheat can be consumed in many ways – as our Indian rotis, as International bread, as a base for snacks like samosas, biscuits, cakes, etc. It is a very versatile grain, you can use it as replacement wherever refined flour is called for.
Now- a- days we like to buy “brown”. Brown bread, brown rice, brown rice flour, brown pasta…. the list is endless. But have we stopped to think, is brown always beautiful? Don't let brown in colour fool you because some manufacturers add caramelized sugar to change white refined products to look like whole grains. Check all food labels carefully to see if you are consuming actual whole wheat/whole grain products. Look for the word "whole" in front of the type of grain listed as the first ingredient on the list. Exceptions are rolled oats and brown rice that are always whole. Some breads list “Whole wheat, Wheat…” The second reference to wheat means refined wheat. Also be aware of less desirable added ingredients, like preservatives: E280 -283 known to cause migraines, skin rashes and gastrointestinal issues, added sugar: “no added sugar” means that some ingredients have sugar pre-mixed into them. The same goes for preservatives and Trans fat.
