Whole Grain Food Also May Hurt Stomach

According to the “my plate” healthy diet directory picture issued by USDA in 2011, grain is very important to every day dieting and you had better have half whole grain food in every day grain you had.
Therefore, people all think that we should have more whole grain food and have it for a long time. However, there is someone once said that the surface of whole grain food, such as the awn of wheat will stimulate the digestive tract and having it long-term may cause peptic diseases like gastric ulcer and gastritis.
“Wheat awn” of oat does not hurt stomach

We have to know that the so-called “wheat-awn” of oat is not the common “pinpoint wheat awn”, but the fuzz on the surface of shelled oat. It is still unclear that whether this kind of fuzz will harm the gastrointestinal mucosa, but there is a procedure of de-hair in the process of making oat product, so the consumer do not need to worry about the problem if you bought the standard product.
Whole grain food has more comprehensive nutrition.
Dietary fiber is beneficial to control blood sugar and blood fat
The so-called whole grain food usually refers to food made from powder grinded with de-peeled grain. This includes brown rice, oatmeal, and whole wheat bread and so on. The main nutritious ingredients of our common flour we have are starch, protein and little vitamin, while most vitamin and minerals we need to maintain our body hides in the bran. Therefore, whole grain food can bring more comprehensive nutrition.
In addition, the benefit of dietary fiber in it to diabetes and hypertension patients has clear medical evidence. This mainly attributes to the character of dietary fiber that it cannot be absorbed by human body, and so it won’t produce heat. What’s more, the dietary fiber absorbed will delay empty stomach, increase satiety, and can help control blood sugar and blood fat.

There are many ways to have dietary fiber.
You do not need to have whole grain food every day.
People can absorb dietary fiber from many foods like vegetable and fungus, so you do not need to rely totally on whole grain food. Besides, as coarse grain, whole grain food will bring burden on stomach and intestines if cooked not enough mature, or having too much, or chewing insufficient. The children and the elderly with poor gastro intestines may have discomfort like dyspepsia, and abdominal distension.
Patients with diabetes or cardiovascular and cerebtovascular disease should have more whole grain food.
Three points to choose whole grain food
Common people should match whole grain food appropriately, and the most suitable group is patients with diabetes or cardiovascular-cerebtovascular disease or people with over nutrition. However, the most important is to keep balance and variety of your diet.
As for how to choose whole grain food, we can see suggestions in USDA website as following: 1. when choosing whole grain food, you should first of all choose product with “pure oatmeal”, “whole wheat” words in ingredients, and those product with words like “mix grain” all are not whole grain food; 2. compare the dietary fiber content in the nutrition information, usually, whole grain food will have more dietary fiber; 3. consumer also should know that choose whole grain food with no extra sugar.
