In whole grain flour, unlike extraction flour, the whole grain is processed into flour. It is therefore one of the healthiest and most nutritious flours. Many valuable ingredients are contained in the marginal layers of the grain kernel and are thus utilized in the use of whole grain flour.
Wholemeal flour and its products contain much more vitamins, minerals, trace elements and fiber, in contrast to wholemeal flour.
Iron, magnesium, calcium, vitamin B and plenty of unsaturated fatty acids are contained in whole grain flour, as these vital substances are found in the rind.
Whole wheat flour contains a lot of carbohydrates, which provide the body with plenty of energy and do not raise blood sugar levels so quickly. In addition, whole grains bring a lot of significant fiber, which quickly satiates (without making fat), promotes digestion and is healthy for the intestines.
Effect on the body
Whole grain products boost metabolism and reduce constipation problems. They should also protect against cancer and reduce the risk of heart disease.
People who eat more whole grain products have a lower risk of developing diabetes. The nerve and muscle activity is also promoted by the consumption of whole grains.
It is best to process milled grain immediately, because it loses important vital substances after only a few hours and can also spoil more quickly. If you mill your whole wheat flour fresh yourself, all the valuable ingredients can be used.
The classic wholemeal flour in the supermarket has already undergone a long production, transport and storage process. Everyone can imagine for themselves how many valuable ingredients are still left in the flour when the end consumer buys it.
In addition, whole wheat flour should “go” for a long time during processing, otherwise it cannot swell enough and the ingredients cannot break down well enough.
In any case, it is worthwhile to grind flour yourself. With the healthy whole foods you will improve your health and conjure up a good feeling. You know exactly that your flour is free of preservatives, and rich in valuable ingredients for the body.
