It’s said a picture is worth a thousand words, and this one certainly qualifies.
On the left is a vial with whole grain wheat, also called wheat berries.
The middle four vials show what is stripped out of wheat during the refining process: bran, middlings, wheat germ and wheat germ oil.
The end result? Bland white flour, stripped of nutrients and fiber. It’s “enriched” with a few vitamins, but there’s really no comparison. The real health food is on the left, and junk food on the right.
Another easy way to change your diet… eat 100% whole grain breads!
