Whole grain Japanese bread with fibre-rich flour in Singapore is consumed primarily for its taste and fibre content. Adults require between 25 and 35 grammes of fibre daily, and whole grains contain two types of fibre—soluble and insoluble—that are both extremely beneficial to your health. Insoluble fibre, which dissolves in water, can aid in reducing glucose and cholesterol levels in the blood. Insoluble fibre, which does not dissolve in water, can facilitate the movement of food through the digestive tract, promoting regularity and preventing constipation.
Here are some of the health benefits associated with wholegrain bread recipes.
1. Improve digestion
If you’re making chocolate chip cookies with recipes that include whole grain flour, the fibre content of whole grains maintains regular bowel movements and protects against diverticulosis, a condition characterised by the formation of small pouches in the colon wall, which can lead to inflammation, diarrhoea, and pain. Also present in whole grains is lactic acid, which promotes good bacteria in the large intestine.
2. Lower blood pressure
The benefits of whole grains for the heart are not limited to lowering cholesterol and triglycerides. In addition, eating bread with whole wheat flour in Singapore reduces blood pressure, one of the most significant risk factors for cardiovascular disease. And people who consume seven or more servings of whole grain weekly have a lower risk of hypertension than those who consume one or fewer servings.
3. Reduce the risk of heart disease
Wholemeal flour benefits not only prevent the body from absorbing ‘bad’ cholesterol but also reduce triglycerides, two contributors to heart disease. Overall, whole grains reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. And women who eat 2-3 servings of whole grains daily are 30% less likely to have a heart attack or die from heart disease.
4. Redistribute fat
Even if eating whole grains does not directly cause weight loss, studies have shown that a diet rich in whole grains can help reduce body fat and promote a healthier fat distribution. Specifically, consuming whole grains can reduce abdominal fat.
