May the Blessings Be! There is nothing wrong with eating lots of bread; so long as it is properly prepared. Weston Price foundation followers say that grain in healthy indigenous societies was always prepared in two of the following three ways: This is to break down phytic acid; which apparently is part of what wrecks our health; with white flour being the other big thing.

So, you should look for whole grain bread. The only bread I can find locally that meets these criteria is Alvarado St. Foodbabe has one of their breads shown above, but seems unaware of the sourdough variety.

It is certified organic, and made with honey, but no added sugar. Some preparations are able to reduce phytates markedly by only soaking overnight, but with rye grain added.

It appears rye is higher in phytase. Killer Dave bread is available at Costco. I discovered that I get lots of stomach cramping and gas and bloating from a diet with bread, sugar etc. Diane, Try Einkorn flour, and there Pasta.

It comes from Italy, and it is the real Ancient grain. There bring it back.. I buy it at my local market , health food department, and whole Foods carries it.. Allot of people that are eating Einkorn flour, pasta, are not have any gluten problems… There is a New book on Amazon called..

I have nothing to do with Amazon, or Einkorn.. I love there flour and Pasta, the only type I will buy. I make a sourdough and a light rye using einkorn flour and a bread machine and they both come out amazing..

Just substitute the einkorn flour in any bread recipe you find. If you have a Superstore they carry some Ezekel breads. You should find them in the freezer of the Organic section of the store. Sorry Food Babe, but I do not agree with you about eating those nasty store bought breads.. Sorry but these store bought breads are Not healthy.

Even those Wheats are causing Gluten problems, and gut problems.. This wheat is not your normal, hybridized wheat consisting of 42 chromosomes per grain. It is reminiscent of the ancient wheat of biblical times, 16 chromosomes per grain.

Not added to it. This does not turn to Sugar right away like the store bought wheat breads. To make a easy bread etc. I have nothing to do with Einkorn wheat, I just love, and do Not gain weight, or get bloated eating this.. No nasty side effects, and most diabetics can eat it.

We are all so fortunate to have someone help us with all of the untruths. I am still trying to figure out why fluoride used in atomic bombs is good for us…I just saw your website today and wondered why additives that are banned all over the world are used in our bread.

In a nutshell, should we just eat organic and eliminate white flour products, sugar, canola and corn? Was wondering if you looked into the Franz gluten-free products, and how they rate with the products on your Healthier Breads list?

What do you think about organic alpine valley bread? You may find that they have these breads in the UK store. Buy bread fresh from your local baker, tastes far better than any mass produced packaged and branded stuff from a supermarket. It has amaranth, hemp, quinoa, teff, sourgum, flax, and millet, and I get it in our local natural food co-op.

Although the pieces are small compared to the over-processed grocery store brands, it toasts well and tastes amazing. I also use Three Bakers 7 Ancient Grains bread. Their website says they use non-GMO ingredients, too. Just eat meat and veggies. Go to your Meijer stores, they sell it in their freezer section, lots of Meijer stores all thur Michigan..

Please read the ingredients of both the sprouted breads and the breads made with flour. I hope you come to the conclusion that, in the long run, the real cost here will be your health if you decide to stay with the garbage sorry on the supermarket shelves. How is that not more than the wheat breads?? I have been making a simple pizza dough recipe in my Food Processor with the bread blade that comes with it. All it has in it is organic flour, water, organic olive oil, Himalian sea salt, yeast and a teaspoon of organic sugar for starting yeast.

After rising the dough for an hour I put it in a Baggie and put in the refrigerator so that I can tear off small pieces whenever I want to make an individual pizza. I also use organic sauce, organic olives, organic onions, and whatever else organic. I also figured out I was just as allergic to gluten free things because I also choke on rice, sometimes even when it is labeled organic.

Would you mind posting it? OR maybe you did and I missed it. Raw butter,lard,coconut all organic is best…or if you cannot get raw butter available only in California and Georgia…. Organic fat is essential as all the junk lives and loves fat…you want to insure any fat you ingest does not have a home for junk to live in….

Factor X is key ingredient via Dr. Pottenger — Price- Pottenger Nutrtiion Foundation. Cooked honey sprayed on bees kills them in minutes. Raw honey does not. Always eat raw for health benefits it does have. It will not raise blood sugar when eaten raw in reasonable amount. It is now evidently clear the Supermarket is now nothing but a Death Dealer.

I think it is time to become a Paleo Hunter — Gatherer and eat only a fresh non GMO vegetables, fruits, grains, seeds, and fresh slaughtered meats and wild caught fish. Time to buy right from the farms who grow Heritage crops. Grow your own herbs! Home grown fresh Peppermint is a delight. Plant a Sassafras tree — make tea.

Time to start making your own home brews, wines and cordials too! Home made wines and cordials are wonderful. Real home cooked Mulled Cider with Rum and butter is a treat. Mulled Wine too is good if it is done correctly.

I love Organic, non homogenized whole milk that still has butter in it. The white water they sell in the stores as Milk is nothing but toxic piss in a plastic bottle.

For a real treat, find fresh Goose eggs. There is nothing else like them. Vie for wild meats. Plains -grass fed only Buffalo is the Best. Avoid any fish or sea food caught in the Pacific Ocean. My intent is to never eat their garbage again. Not even their coffee! Unfortunately, those of us who are on a strict budget, or retired on same do not have the ability to drive long distances to farms. We have to deal with what is in the stores and Sprouts or Trader Joes are the best….

Or appearing to, with their Simple Truth foods, and I am even seeing more organic foods in Walmart. I should have added those with limited mobility. I just had hip surgery, and sometimes have felt grateful to get anything to eat, having to have my groceries delivered. I sometimes look at the city as a death camp….. Still working on that. I need to do research on making wine. I try to eat semi-vegan if I can, since free-range meat is hard to come by, I have given up on grass-fed buffalo.

I know there is a couple who was trying to make it, near Colorado Springs, and they said they were the only grass-fed non-feed lot bison in CO, but have never seen their meats here in Aurora, although I contacted Vitamin Cottage and Sprouts about them.

I have recently discovered Sprouts and love their store. Like it better than Whole Foods…. The two most common types are the ring doughnut and the filled doughnut, which is injected with fruit preserves , cream , custard , or other sweet fillings.

Alternatively, small pieces of dough are sometimes cooked as doughnut holes. Once fried, doughnuts may be glazed with a sugar icing, spread with icing or chocolate on top, or topped with powdered sugar or sprinkles or fruit.

Other shapes include rings, balls, flattened spheres, twists, and other forms. Doughnut varieties are also divided into cake including the old-fashioned and yeast-risen type doughnuts. Doughnuts are often accompanied by coffee purchased at doughnut shops or fast food restaurants, but can also be paired with milk. Ring doughnuts are formed by one of two methods: This smaller piece of dough can be cooked and served as a "doughnut hole" or added back to the batch to make more doughnuts.

A disk-shaped doughnut can also be stretched and pinched into a torus until the center breaks to form a hole. Alternatively, a doughnut depositor can be used to place a circle of liquid dough batter directly into the fryer. There are two types of ring doughnuts, those made from a yeast-based dough for raised doughnuts, or those made from a special type of cake batter. After frying, ring doughnuts are often topped. Raised doughnuts are generally covered with a glaze icing.

Cake doughnuts can also be glazed, or powdered with confectioner's sugar , or covered with cinnamon and granulated sugar. They are also often topped with cake frosting top-side only and sometimes sprinkled with coconut, chopped peanuts, or sprinkles also called jimmies. Doughnut holes are small, bite-sized doughnuts that were traditionally made from the dough taken from the center of ring doughnuts. Before long, doughnut sellers saw the opportunity to market "holes" as a novelty and many chains offer their own variety, some with their own brand names such as "Munchkins" from Dunkin' Donuts and " Timbits " from Tim Hortons.

Traditionally, doughnut holes are made by frying the dough removed from the center portion of the doughnut. Similar to standard doughnuts, doughnut holes may be topped with confections, such as glaze or powdered sugar. Originally, most varieties of doughnut holes were derivatives of their ring doughnut yeast-based dough or cake batter counterparts. However, doughnut holes can also be made by dropping a small ball of dough into hot oil from a specially shaped nozzle or cutter.

Filled doughnuts are flattened spheres injected with fruit preserves , cream , custard , or other sweet fillings, and often dipped into powdered sugar or topped off with frosting.

Common varieties include the Boston cream , coconut , key lime , and jelly. Others include the fritter and the Dutchie , which are usually glazed. These have been available on Tim Hortons ' doughnut menu since the chain's inception in , [4] and a Toronto Star report found these two were the chain's most popular type of fried dough in Canada.

There are many other specialized doughnut shapes such as old-fashioned , bars or Long Johns a rectangular shape , or with the dough twisted around itself before cooking.

In the northeast United States, bars and twists are usually referred to as crullers. Another is the beignet , a square-shaped doughnut covered with powdered sugar, commonly associated with New Orleans.

While food resembling doughnuts has been found at many ancient sites, the earliest origins to the modern doughnuts are generally traced back to the olykoek "oil y cake" Dutch settlers brought with them to early New York or New Amsterdam.

These doughnuts closely resembled later ones but did not yet have their current ring-sized shape. The name oly koeks was almost certainly related to the oliekoek: According to anthropologist Paul R.

Mullins , the first cookbook mentioning doughnuts was an English volume which included doughnuts in an appendix of American recipes. He also traces its origins to the oliekoek that arrived in America with the Dutch settlers in the early 18th century. By the midth century, the doughnut looked and tasted like today's doughnut, and was viewed as a thoroughly American food. Hanson Gregory, an American, claimed to have invented the ring-shaped doughnut in aboard a lime-trading ship when he was 16 years old.

Gregory was dissatisfied with the greasiness of doughnuts twisted into various shapes and with the raw center of regular doughnuts. He claimed to have punched a hole in the center of dough with the ship's tin pepper box, and to have later taught the technique to his mother. Another theory on their origin came to light in , when a recipe for "dow nuts" was found in a book of recipes and domestic tips written around by the wife of Baron Thomas Dimsdale , [12] the recipe being given to the dowager Baroness by an acquaintance who transcribed for her the cooking instructions for a "dow nut".

The earliest known recorded usage of the term dates to an short story [14] describing a spread of "fire-cakes and dough-nuts". Washington Irving 's reference to "doughnuts" in in his History of New York is more commonly cited as the first written recording of the term. Irving described "balls of sweetened dough, fried in hog's fat, and called doughnuts, or olykoeks. The word nut is here used in the earlier sense of "small rounded cake or cookie". Peck , published in , in which a character is quoted as saying, "Pa said he guessed he hadn't got much appetite, and he would just drink a cup of coffee and eat a donut.

Edge Donuts, an American passion the alternative spelling "donut" was invented when the New York—based Display Doughnut Machine Corporation abbreviated the word to make it more pronounceable by the foreigners they hoped would buy their automated doughnut making equipment. In four articles beginning October 9, two mention the donut spelling. Dunkin' Donuts , which was so-named in , following its founding under the name Open Kettle Quincy, Massachusetts , is the oldest surviving company to use the donut variation; other chains, such as the defunct Mayflower Doughnut Corporation , did not use that spelling.

Because of the difficulties of providing freshly baked goods from huts established in abandoned buildings near the front lines, the two Salvation Army volunteers Ensign Margaret Sheldon and Adjutant Helen Purviance came up with the idea of providing doughnuts.

These are reported to have been an "instant hit", and "soon many soldiers were visiting The Salvation Army huts". Margaret Sheldon wrote of one busy day: In the US, especially in Southern California , fresh doughnuts sold by the dozen at local doughnut shops are typically packaged in generic pink boxes. This phenomenon can be attributed to Ted Ngoy and Ning Yen, refugees of the Cambodian genocide who transformed the local doughnut shop industry. They proved so adept at the business and in training fellow Chinese Cambodian refugees to follow suit that these local doughnut shops soon dominated native franchises such as Winchell's Donuts.

Initially desiring boxes of a lucky red color rather than the standard white, Ngoy and Yen settled on a cheaper, leftover pink stock. Owing to the success of their business, the color soon became a recognizable standard. Due to the locality of Hollywood , the pink boxes frequently appeared as film and television props and were thus transmitted into popular culture.

Yeast doughnuts and cake doughnuts contain most of the same ingredients, however, their structural differences arise from the type of flour and leavening agent used.

In cake doughnuts, cake flour is used, and the resulting doughnut is denser because cake flour has a relatively low gluten content of about 7 to 8 percent. In cake doughnuts, the most common leavening agent is baking powder. This neutralizes the base and produces more CO 2 according to the following equation: The physical structure of the doughnut is created by the combination of flour, leavening agent, sugar, eggs, salt, water, shortening, milk solids, and additional components.

The most important ingredients for creating the dough network are the flour and eggs. Specifically, "the backbone of the gluten network likely consists of the largest glutenin molecules, or subunits, aligned and tightly linked to one another. These tightly linked glutenin subunits associate more loosely, along with gliadin, into larger gluten aggregates.

In mixing, the gluten is developed when the force of the mixer draws the gluten from the wheat endosperm, allowing the gluten matrix to trap the gas cells.

Eggs function as emulsifiers , foaming agents, and tenderizers in the dough. Egg solids, chiefly the egg white solids combined with the moisture in the egg, are considered structure-forming materials that help significantly to produce proper volume, grain, and texture. Emulsifying agents are essential to doughnut formation because they prevent the fat molecules from separating from the water molecules in the dough.

The main emulsifier in egg yolk is called lecithin, which is a phospholipid. It is this ability to attract both lipids and water that allow phospholipids such as lecithin to act as emulsifiers.

When heat is applied to the dough, the egg proteins will begin to unfold, or denature, and then form new bonds with one another, thus creating a gel-like network that can hold water and gas. Shortening is responsible for providing tenderness and aerating the dough. The sugar used in baking is essentially sucrose, and besides imparting sweetness in the doughnut, sugar also functions in the color and tenderness of the final product. Sucrose is a simple carbohydrate whose structure is made up of a glucose molecule bound to a fructose molecule.

These solids are obtained by removing most of the water from skim milk with heat, and this heat additionally denatures the whey proteins and increases the absorption properties of the remaining proteins. The major whey protein in the nonfat milk solids is known as beta-lactoglobulin, and a crucial feature of its structure is that there exists a single sulfhydryl group that is protected by the alpha helix, and when heating of the milk solids occurs, these groups participate in disulfide exchanges with other molecules.

This interchange prevents the renaturation of the whey proteins. Water is a necessary ingredient in the production of doughnuts because it activates the other ingredients, allowing them to perform their functions in building the doughnut's structure. For example, sugar and salt crystals must be dissolved in order for them to act in the dough, whereas larger molecules, such as the starches or proteins, must be hydrated in order for them to absorb moisture.

Pure water consists of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen, but water used in baking often is not pure. Doughnuts are unhealthy, [39] some less so than others. An important property of the dough that affects the final product is the dough's rheology. This property measures the ability of the dough to flow.

It can be represented by the power law equation: Dough is usually described as a viscoelastic material, meaning that its rheology depends on both the viscosity and the elasticity. The viscosity coefficient and the flow index are unique to the type of dough being analyzed, while the tangentic stress and the shear rate are measurements obtained depending on the type force being applied to the dough.

In South Africa , an Afrikaans variation known as the koeksister is popular. Another variation, similar in name, is the Cape Malay koesister being soaked in a spiced syrup and coated in coconut.

It has a texture similar to more traditional doughnuts as opposed to the Afrikaans variety. It is served with mince, syrup, honey or jam. In Tunisia , traditional pastries similar to doughnuts are yo-yos. They come in different versions both as balls and in shape of doughnuts.

They are deep-fried and covered in a honey syrup or a kind of frosting. Sesame seeds are also used for flavor and decoration along with orange juice and vanilla. In Morocco , Sfenj is a similar pastry eaten sprinkled with sugar or soaked in honey. A few sweet, doughnut-style pastries are regional in nature.

Chinese restaurants in the United States sometimes serve small fried pastries similar to doughnut holes with condensed milk as a sauce. These pastries are not sweet and are often served with congee , a traditional rice porridge.

In India , an old-fashioned sweet called gulgula is made of sweetened, deep-fried flour balls. A leavening agent may or may not be used.

In India , there are a couple of unrelated doughnut-shaped food items. A savory, fried, ring-shaped snack called a vada is often referred to as the Indian doughnut. The vada is made from dal , lentil or potato flours rather than wheat flour.

In South India, a vada is eaten with sambar and a coconut chutney. Sweet pastries similar to old-fashioned doughnuts called badushahi and jalebi are also popular. Balushahi , also called badushah , is made from flour, deep fried in clarified butter, and dipped in sugar syrup. Unlike a doughnut, balushahi is dense. A balushahi is ring-shaped, but the well in the center does not go all the way through to form a hole typical of a doughnut.

GI is measured by having a test subject fast overnight, measuring fasted blood glucose, and then feeding them ONE thing and one thing only. Judging individual foods by their GI score is completely useless. But the bread will be pretty pale in colour and fine in texture. Go shopping with an Italian housewife in Puglia sometime…. Sweet would be your typical jams or jellies.

I also noticed that while they grew corn, it was the high starch kind. This was typically served with plenty of kajmak as well. All of this could have changed completely 50 miles from where I was. This is part of why I find travel so fascinating…. Absolutely — pura is Croatian region polenta. But they eat loads of cured sausage mortadella type stuff and soft cheeses.

And sweet pasta too for Christmas and Easter and things. My attitude is either you eat meat or you are a veggie — so who cares what the meat is as long as it is clean. It seemed like a lot of falderal, to be honest. I thought much of the press coverage was just playing up the titillation of people actual eating horse meat…as opposed to the real problem behind it as I see it: Paul is right,of course we eat butter with bread!! I live in greece,ok?

Hmmm lets see, butter with honey and bread,butter on pasta and rice,butter with rice cakes and honey all the bread recipes come also with jam and ,boiled millet with butter delicious! Ok ok we know gluten is the major culprit for many diseases but if people spice up their cousine spices are anti-iflammatory , eat many fruits and make veggie smoothies twice a day, then i think they can overcome their problems. He was against juicing and believed that toasted bread or biscuit crackers had a less substance of the bread that made it so evil nowadays we know this sticky substance is gluten..

On page 34 he states that the GI of whole grain bread is 72 and a Snickers is The only problem with your argument is that while of course glucose is toxic, the sugar in the snickers has triglycerides since its fructose and has be metabolized in the liver, thus causing insulin resistance, much the reason agave is so controversial, but yes, a small snickers provides satisfaction with your salmon and salad, rather than listen to the media. The main problem is that the Dr who wrote this book and the writer in this blog is citing the WRONG column in this chart.

You should be looking at the G load per serving or the last column. In this column the snickers G load is 2 times higher. This is like saying than watermelon or peas are worse for you than a snickers bars.

No even with the very high GI number if you look at the per serving number you will see this argument is very flawed. These foods are much lower calorie and have a lot more fiber which changes how quickly they are digested…And snickers are one of the better candy bars because of the peanuts…… Either this Doctor does not understand the charts or is lying to the public to sell books.

Glucose is not toxic. Excess glucose is bad for you….. No glucose means NO energy and you could not function….. Miss using the GI to eliminate grains from your diet is just as foolish as ignoring the importance of glucose in your diet.

The author admitted that TWO slices of bread is worse, not one. The Snickers bar serving size is double of tge singke sluce of bread. Therefore, TWO slices of bread is similar to the Snickers for the last column value. Previous replies noted the snickers bar is a group of food types in itself as well. And another mentioned two slices of bread should have something in between them! Whole wheat bread releases carbs at a slower rate than white bread.

A proper diet is so simple: Every meal needs a balance of lean protien, good fats and good Carbs. Ironically the Subway sandwich diet is actually a representative example of a perfect balance and the correct ratio for a meal: Let me see the number of subjects, mean increase, etc…. This topic is so misunderstood by the masses and the biochemistry cherry picked to a point of view. It really cracks me up.

Have stopped eating bread, and trying to avoid all glutens. In 16 days I have lost 14 lbs.
