5 benefits of eating refined flour

1. Effect on digestion

Consuming refined flour can be harmful to our digestive system. It is ground very finely, due to which it lacks fiber. Due to this constipation and other stomach problems can occur. Eating refined flour slows down the digestive system and can cause problems like indigestion, gas, and stomach bloating.

2. Obesity

Refined flour is a high-calorie diet and eating it makes you feel hungry quickly. It promotes the habit of eating frequently, which leads to high-calorie intake and weight gain. Refined flour products such as bread, biscuits, cakes, etc. also contain extra sugar and fat, which is a major cause of obesity.

3. Effect on blood sugar level

Refined flour has a high glycemic index, which can increase blood sugar levels rapidly. This is especially harmful for diabetes patients. Eating refined flour can increase insulin resistance, which increases the risk of type 2 diabetes. 

4. Nutrient Deficiency

Most of the nutrients in refined flour are destroyed during its preparation. It contains very little vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Instead, it provides only calories, which can lead to a deficiency of essential nutrients in the body. Its continuous consumption can cause malnutrition, which can lead to fatigue, weakness, and decreased immunity.

5. Risk of heart disease

Products made from refined flour are high in trans fat and saturated fat, which can be harmful to the heart. It can increase cholesterol levels and increase the risk of plaque accumulation in the arteries, increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke.
