The Nasty Story of Puffed Wheat

A study shows...there is actually something toxic about the puffed wheat itself.

The president of the company said, “I know people should throw it on brides and grooms at weddings, but if they insist on sticking it in their mouths, can I help it? Besides, we made 9 million dollars on the stuff last year.”

 

This is a true story about puffed wheat from Sally Fallon’s book Nourishing Traditions:

The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats.

 

Four sets of rats were given special diets.

Group 1) plain whole wheat, water, vitamins and minerals

Group 2) puffed wheat, water and same chemical nutrients

Group 3) water, white sugar

Group 4) water and the same chemical nutrients

 

Which group’s lives were shortest?

Group 2, the puffed wheat group, lived only 2 weeks.

Group 3 lived for one month.

Group 4 lived for eight weeks.

Group 1 lived for over a year.

 

The study showed that it wasn’t a matter of the rats dying of malnutrition; results like these suggested that there was actually something toxic about the puffed wheat itself. Proteins are very similar to certain toxins in molecular structure, and the puffing process of putting the grain under 1500 pounds per square inch of pressure and then releasing it may produce chemical changes which turn a nutritious grain into a poisonous substance.

Sally goes on to say that Paul Stitt, author of Fighting the Food Giants, states that Dr. Clark who shared his concern, took this report to the company who produced the puffed wheat. The president of the company said, “I know people should throw it on brides and grooms at weddings, but if they insist on sticking it in their mouths, can I help it? Besides, we made 9 million dollars on the stuff last year.”

So not sure what to give the kids for snacks? What about celery sticks with almond butter, or an apple with some cheese. Much healthier and much more sustaining!
