The standard American diet is made from diet of chronic disease and death. Our food supply has been killing us slowly. White flour has been killing you!
In 1910, the Federal District Court of Missouri has made a statement about the bleached white flour and how it is not good for human consumption.
5 Secrets About White Flour That will Shock You
1. Bleached Flour contains nearly NO nutrients.
The manufacturers of white flour firstly remove the wheat seed’s bran, it is made from 6 outer layers, and the germ that is made from 76% of the vitamins and minerals. 97% of the dietary fiber is also lost.” It removes all Vitamin E, 50% of calcium, 70% phosphorus, iron, magnesium and B vitamins.
2. Added Potassium Bromate
After they remove all of the layers and nutrients the flour is been bleached, preserved, and aged with chlorine dioxide. It is after that been whitened with the chalk, alum, and ammonium carbonate that will make it to look and to feel more appealing to the consumer. An anti-salting agent called sorbitan mono-saturate is added in the final stage. Potassium bromate is also added to white flour. It is very powerful oxidizer that damages cells. Bromate is considered a category 2B carcinogen (= possibly carcinogenic to humans) by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Potassium bromate has been banned in most of developed countries in 1994 including all countries in European Union (chlorine, bromates, and peroxides in food is banned in the EU), UK, and Canada.
3. White flour is a natural insecticide
Have you been aware that if an insect gets into the bag of white flour and is starting to eat it, that insect is going to die from consuming it? White flour is a natural insecticide because it kills any insect that attempts to live off of it.
4. Contains L-cysteine
This non essential amino acid is been added to lot of conventional baked goods that will speed the industrial processing. L-cysteine is found in the majority of pizza doughs, cookies, pastas, pastries and fast food buns.
It can be synthesized in a laboratory but cheaper production methods include duck feathers and human hair. Besides human hair and some other compounds of L-cysteine include chicken feathers, cow horns and petroleum byproducts. Most of the L-cysteine comes from China where there’s a history of poor regulation. It is disgusting and scary.
5. White flour contains diabetes-causing contaminant alloxan
White flour is filled with alloxan. This is the ingredient that makes your bread to look fresh and clean. Studies have shown that the alloxan is destroying the beta cells of the pancreas. Alloxan’s harmful effects on the pancreas are so severe that the Textbook of Natural Medicine calls the chemical “a potent beta-cell toxin.” Unfortunately, knowing that alloxan is so toxic for your body, the FDA still allows companies to use it when processing foods we ingest. Fortunately, studies have found that the effects of alloxan can be reversed with vitamin E. According to Dr. Gary Null’s Clinicians Handbook of Natural Healing, vitamin E effectively protected lab rats from the harmful effects of administered alloxan.
