Chased away from everyday diet, white bread has finally been reclaimed as not such an insidious food. After a series of experiments British scientists exonerated white bread stating that it has no relation to putting on weight. It depends on how much and what with it is eaten.
The first thing many of those who wish to slim down do is to give up starchy foods. But though the intake of wheat foods diminished, obesity retains its status as a major problem.
Also, many people believe – quite mistakenly – that wheat foods don’t agree with them or that they are allergic to gluten, protein found in wheat and other cereal foods.
Food experts at Portsmouth University believe that harmful bread is nothing but a myth that should be dispelled. Actually bread is an important food containing calcium, B-group vitamins that help sustain stress. Besides dietitians claim that bread helps better digest proteins, folic acid, iron.
