The truth on white flour

Have you ever wondered how white flour is processed?  White flour is made from stripping the wheat bran and wheat germ from it, bleaching it to remove its natural yellow color, adding synthetic B vitamins, and also increasing the amount of gluten the flour can produce.

The synthetic vitamins that are added into the flour are toxic to the human body also, enriched flour is not absorbed by the body as a wheat or a grain. Once everything is stripped down you are just left with a starch. The body reacts to a pure starch in the same way as it does to sugar, it spikes highs and lows in your system.   There are alternatives for replacing enriched flour.  Some of them are:  whole wheat, oat flour, rye flour, almond meal, brown rice flour, and millet flour.
