For example, you do not need to eat hot bread, especially crumb - this can cause pain and indigestion. Yesterday's bread on the contrary - is easier to digest, improves digestion and does not leave a sense of heaviness, if not to abuse.

Having studied the varieties of flour, you will learn how to learn the label yourself and make the right choice before buying.

From what bake the right bread



Flour, from which are baked all kinds ofbread, is divided into several varieties and degrees of grinding. And the lower the grade of flour, the more useful it is bread. Variety of flour denotes not its quality, but its content in flour useful for digestion and the figure of natural shells of grain and bran. We will go into more detail in the main.

1. High-grade flour is usually baked with high-calorie buns with sugar, buns with raisins and other sweet pastries. Wheat flour of the highest grade is already cleared of vitamins and minerals, because from it the embryo and all natural shells of grain are removed. Baking from such flour makes digestion difficult and, turning into ballast, slag the body. Often high-grade flour is added with special bleaches and, to slightly increase the usefulness of bread, synthetic vitamins that can cause allergies and poisoning. Another disadvantage of such flour is that it quickly increases blood sugar, and this immediately affects the figure in the form of visible deposits on your waist.

2. The first and second grade flour is used for baking bread and uneaten products. This flour contains more shells of grain and, accordingly, brings more benefits, in contrast to flour of higher grades.

3. The most useful can be called a wallpaper flour, which is made from whole grains. This flour is quite rough, and when baking it, bakers mix the flour of higher grades so that the bread rises well and does not turn out to be so hard. Coat flour contains all its natural shells, incredibly rich in fiber, B vitamins, vitamin E, minerals, iron, zinc and selenium. Butter flour is unpresentable and at the same time is the most valuable in the diet of a person who watches over his health and figure.

A great role is played by the size of grinding flour. The thinner it is, the worse it affects us: in the body, baking from fine grinding flour is a hard-to-digestible lump, and from the coarse flour - on the contrary, it improves and eliminates many digestive problems.

To successfully lose weight, breadyou need to eat necessarily, but exclude from your menu sweet cakes, lavish bread made from wheat flour of the finest grind and baking containing yeast, which come into conflict with the microflora of the body.

How to choose a healthy bread if there is no manufacturer's label

Help you in this two practical tips:

1. Pay attention to the top crust of bread. If it is made of useful wallpaper flour, the crust will be bumpy and plain, if smooth with an even, uniform color - from fine grinding flour.
2. The fact that the bread is baked from the flour of coarse grinding, indicate the various inclusions and the heterogeneous structure of the crumb on the cut.
