As you can see the germ and bran contain lots of healthy stuff that is not found in the endosperm. Whole grains are cereal grains in their natural state ie they contain all three main parts endosperm bran and germ. Refined grains are groats from which the bran and germ have been removed by grinding and sifting. Refining causes the grains to lose some of their nutritional value. Sometimes nutrients such as vitamins are added back. But as these represent a small fraction of the nutrients removed refined grains are nutritionally inferior to whole grains. Removing the bran and grinding the grains into a fine powder increases the glycemic index value (GI) of the grain ie you digest glucose from refined grains quicker than glucose from whole grains which as a diabetic is not what you want.
As you chat about your eating habits this new friend swears by Dave s Killer Bread. Now you are wondering if perhaps you could make a better choice for your carbohydrate sources by switching to Dave s Killer Bread. As you ponder this new thought you hear the voice of your current health and fitness guru in your head speaking to you about how Ezekiel Bread is the only way. What do you do? Well that is where I am able to help you. I ve wondered the same thing myself and went about looking into the similarities and differences. I ve made my choice and you can make yours. Let s take a look at what the breads have in common. They both use "all organic whole grain" sources for their ingredients and that is a great thing. They both use sea salt in the bread making process.
The intuitive answer is that it must worsen the GI value because it introduces air into the matrix. But according to researchers in New Zealand the leavening agents used in making bread do not have any impact on the GI of the bread. Types of bread There are hundreds of different breads in the world. Here are a few of the most common. Notice the subtle differences which may or may not be designed to confuse the consumer. White bread is made from refined flour ie grain from which the bran and germ have been removed so that it only contains the endosperm (the central core of the grain). By contrast wholemeal bread is made from the whole of the wheat grain (endosperm bran and germ) ie from unrefined flour. Brown bread is not the same as wholemeal bread.
