  • Whole grain wheat?

    Are whole grain cereals good or bad? I have found some organic brands, but did not try because I noticed that recomended breads are white or potato?

    Is there a problem with whole grains?

    Whole Grains

    Whole grains, esp in dry cereal are a no-no for me. I have no idea why. That includes dry "energy" bars.

    My take on it - - of it's supposed to be healthy, watch out LOL

      I do OK with whole grain. That said, I think my diet sensitivity isn't as much as others. My biggest triggers are vinegar products, caffiene and citrus. If you're not sure, you might try a small quantity first and see how that goes. Good luck!

        I figured out that for me... whole grains that have no dough conditioners ( extra stuff to make the bread stay fresh) are good for me. Any time I eat an off the shelf bread front the grocery store I have problems. I have also found that some yeast has citric acid in it. So... I have a great bakery near me that is 100% preservitave free..even the yeast. It is a chain called Bread harvest. They do ship so if you wnat to try le tme know I can get you info. The other place I can get bread is Whole Food. But BEWARE not all of their fresh bakes breads are without dough conditioners. I think, if I remember correctly, that the rolls were mor friendly than the big loafs....

        We just baked a loaf of whole wheat and used King Arthur Flour andFleishmans yeast in a jar. The package stuff has acid. It was YUMMY!!!

        I also eat a ton of barley and buckwheat. I prepare it like Rice or use the flour for pancakes and stuff...

        Hope this helps!

          I'm okay with whole wheat as long as the bread has no vinegar, citric acid, etc.
          I get those breads at Whole Foods or my Safeway has a shelf for local bakery breads without preservatives. (Yes, lucky)
