If you are among the countless number of people who cannot imagine a meal without a slice of bread, this article is for you. Bread is probably the most popular food on earth. However, besides the fact that it is delicious and satisfying, it is linked with the risk of various diseases. All experts agree on one thing- bread should be avoided.
That doesn’t mean that you should live without bread. The bread contains grains which cannot be easily digested, and as a result, they overwork the pancreatic enzymes. Moreover, bread contains gluten and antinutrient phytic acid, which are detrimental to the health. What’s more, most of the bread available in the markets has been through some serious genetic manipulation.
Probably the main issue when it comes to wheat is that we all consume too much of it. However, there are people who are sensitive to gluten. The flour is treated with any of the 60 different chemicals approved by the FDA, such as chemical bleach.
As we said earlier, all these things don’t mean that you should live without bread. Instead, you can consume bread which is made without the harmful ingredient-flour. Yes, you’ve heard well, we are talking about flourless bread. This bread is made from natural ingredients, such as fresh grains and legumes, which will provide the necessary protein, fiber, and B vitamins. What’s so great about it, it is affordable and you can prepare it at the convenience of your home.
