Why our daily bread is killing us

Our daily bread is not very good for us

Our daily bread is not very good for us. That's certainly true for the standard loaf you buy in the stores, and now researchers know why. Most bread is made with wheat flour and bran, and this causes insulin resistance which, in turn, can lead to high blood sugar (glycaemia), high blood pressure and cause bad blood fats. These are conditions that are precursors of type II diabetes and heart disease, researchers from Sweden's Lund University have discovered. The only bread that actually helps us become healthier is wholegrain bread that is baked with white rye flour, which comes from the inner, white part of the rye kernel. This bread helps improves levels of insulin and blood sugar levels. And to make your diet better yet, add porridge to the mix.
