Bleached Wheat Flour Much More Harmful Than You Think
In addition to loss of fiber, vitamins, mineral and other nutrients, bleached white flour also contain alloxan, a very harmful chemical. Researchers use alloxan in the healthy laboratory animals to induce diabetes. Alloxan is extremely toxic to the insulin- producing cells in the pancreas, and kills them. Consequently, the pancreas cannot produce insulin and the animal develops diabetes.
consumption of small amounts of alloxan over a period of time may be a
significant factor in causing diabetes.
Where does alloxan come from:
Natural wheat does not contain any alloxan. It is a byproduct of the process of bleaching the flour, which involves treating the flour with Chlorine oxide. In addition to whitening the flour, Chlorine oxide also ages the flour within a short period of hours, as compared to the old-fashioned natural aging of flour, which takes several months. Dr. Mercola has written a great article on this topic.
Processing the natural wheat to a harmful bleached flour is just another example of “Whenever you go against Nature, you pay you price, sooner or later.”
