Everyday we eat breads. But we must avoid eating white breads. White breads are made of processed flour, which do not contain the nutritious germ and bran of the wheat grain. Only the least nutritious white and starchy endosperm is present in white breads. Besides, they contain added sugars and high fructose corn syrup. These are not good for health. Weight problems, diabetes and cardiovascular disease may occur, if we consume white breads regularly. Instead, we may eat brown breads which are made from whole wheat flour. Whole wheat flour breads are rich in fibre, protein, vitamin E and B, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous, iron, potassium and zinc. They also contain a phytonutrient known as plant lignans which protects from breast cancer and heart disease.
