In this article, we will provide you all the details regarding white flour.
Every one of us have heard about Maida or White Flour along with its harmful effects on health. Even after its long list of side effects, white flour's use and its products are produce rapidly and we are consuming it as well either in the form of bread at our houses or in the form of junk and fast foods at food joints.
Maida is also known as 'white poison' and has become a part of necessity. It drastically effects our health so it is important to know why it is not good for health and up to what level it can harm us.
Why say‘No’ to Maida?
While processing white flour from wheat, two important components required for digestion that is endosperm (removed from wheat germ) and bran (wheat bran) is removed.Because of the missing required nutrients in Maida, its processed food items utilize body nutrients for absorption. It results in depletion of mineral and vitamins from the body.
For attracting maximum consumers, some of the manufacturers label the products as 'enriched flour' as they only add 3-4 vitamins after losing 10 vitamins during the processing of wheat.
How Maida (white flour) is affecting your body?
1- Maida is tasty, but not good for health
If you want to improve fertility or a pregnant woman then refined carb i.e. white flour doesn't provide much nutritional value to your body, turns into sugar and feeds yeast. It is advisable for the pregnant women to opt for whole wheat because of fiber availability along with other nutrients. It interferes with the digestion process so, it is good to avoid maida during pregnancy. You can replace white flour with whole wheat pasta, brown rice, wheat bread and so on.
2- Maida regulates sugar/ glucose in body
It releases sugar into the bloodstream very quickly. It increases the sugar levels as it has high Glycemic index (GI). Pancreas has to work a lot for releasing the sufficient insulin to match with the sugar level. Pancreas can still manage if the consumption is quite low. But if consume frequently then insulin production will gradually reduce and you can develop Diabetes.
Glucose attaches to proteins once it begins loitering in the blood which is known as Glycation. It results in inflammation in body and leads to multiple diseases such as Cataract, heart disease, arthritis and so on.
White flour also increases the level of bad cholesterol which results in mood swings, high blood pressure as well as weight gain. Obesity is the next phase once you start gaining weight and it keeps you hungry. You start developing crave for sugar.
3- Acidic is another feature
While refining, all the nutrients are removed and maida becomes acidic in nature. Acidity is another issue that needs to be in control. Consumption of acidic foods in high quantity forces the body's calcium from bones for maintaining balance thus, affecting the density of bones.
4- White flour leads to digestive problems
Maida has been termed as 'Glue of the gut' as most of the edible items are made from white floor. From breakfast food to snacks, pasta, cereal, bread and so many things to add in the list. This all changes to glue in the intestine. It slows the digestion and creates inactive metabolism as it is without fiber. Ultimately it leads to headaches, migraines, stress and weight gain.
Replacement of Maida
If you want to improve your health and fertility or you are pregnant then it is advised to avoid white flour and its products. You can use:
1- Ragi flour is gluten free and is suggested for those who are lactose intolerant. It is also suitable for diabetics.
2- Soy flour is other alternative which is a combination of protein, vitamin D, iron, calcium, zinc, manganese, B vitamins folate and vitamin K. Replacing regular Atta (wheat) with it will also improve the flavor and texture.
3- Bajra flour is denser in energy and is used in winters. It is packed with amino acids and antioxidants. It is beneficial for regulating blood sugar levels, blood pressure and heart related concerns.
Other alternatives are jowar flour and quinoa flour.
