About 75% of the American population is in some way allergic to wheat and doesn't know it. When wheat is processed 26 of the minerals and nutrients are removed during that process. Near the end the flour is enriched by putting back four of those lost nutrients. If someone on the street would rob you of $26.00 then gave you back $4.00, would you feel enriched? The big problem today is modern wheat that is mostly GMO wheat. I have read recent research where GMO wheat has been linked to autism like symptoms in young children. Most European and some South American countries have banned the import of American wheat and all GMO seeds. When I shop for food if the label mentions wheat or any product of wheat it doesn't go in my basket. If I want a BLT or a pulled pork sandwich I'll make some wheat free, gluten free soda bread. Always look for the "Non GMO verified" label. If you want heart healty food avoid wheat.
