      Can someone please tell me the health benefits of eating whole wheat as oppose to eating foods made of white flour? and why exactly is white flour bad for you?

      I tried googling this...but I would still like to hear other views.

      anyway go on...convince me to make the switch.

      whole wheat flour is naymat and while whilte flour is zehmat

      white flour is dvoid of bran

      whole wheat has more protien, vitamins, mineral as compared to white flour; which is high in carbohydrate and sugar.

      I think it depends on the type of white wheat you consume. There was just a report on the news how sourdough bread (which is made with white wheat) is actually a lot healthier than your regular whole wheat bread.

      It's actually better (and tastier) to eat whole grain as opposed to whole wheats.

      go on.

      niksik...I have already started to switch over...SLOWLY! it's just so difficult. I tend to go back and forth though. I have heard that you get used to the taste with time...is it true?

      oh and I hate eating brown rice...especially with desi foods

      wow! I didnt know that white flour has absolulely no nutritional value. I guess that should be reason enough to make the switch.

      Some people even bake cookies and cakes with whole wheat *gags and pukes*

      white flour releases sugar into your blood stream quicker than wholemeal flour.

      wholemeal takes time to convert into sugar thus providing a steady flow of sugar into your bloodstream.

      That is terribly wrong statement !

      Although, white flour is deficient in nutritional value still they contain some vitamin protien and mineral but far less than whole wheat.

      In US and europe , white flour is fortified in order to enrich it with vitamins and mineral which were lost due to removing bran and other parts of wheat.

      The real loss is of dietry fiber. As wheat contains very healthy ammount of dietry fiber so it is low in carbohydrates and high in protien and vitamin.

      Hence it is good for your digestive system and RDA.

      We eat roti / Chapati / Pratha in our daily life, which is made of Atta ( whole wheat flour). It is standard part of our life. maida is used very rarely in our house.

      There is no need to go for an overkill

      Cookies or cakes are baked occasionally. There is no need to change the religion. They can still be made of white flour, there is no harm. But if you are not using whole wheat in your routine then there will be problems in long run.

      Switching to brown rice is also not essential , if eat whole wheat and pulses and vegetalbes. You get healthy amount of nutrition from all these sources

      At first I didnt like wholemeal flour chappatis/roti, i found them too thick, so they need to be made very thin. Wholemeal naans are great too.

      I see the main dissadvantage of white flour / white rice / white pasta being their high GI.

      The glycemic index or GI describes this difference by ranking carbohydrates according to their effect on our blood glucose levels.

      This is why after 2/3 hours have past after you have eaten say white rice you will feel hungry again.

      Its the secret to long-term health reducing your risk of heart disease and diabetes and is the key to sustainable weight loss.
