Here come the stupids – processed flours

Concentrated refined flours allow for the creation of high calorie foods that do not have the same ratio of water and nutrients that produce such as a potato or sweet potato have.  When people were fighting for calories, this was great.  When calories became cheap, this became a part of the overall weight problem.  A 25 lb. bag of flour has 160,000 calories, 25 lbs of navel oranges have only 8,000 calories.  which is more natural?  Refined flour, sugar and high fructose corn syrup are probably driving a lot of the obesity related diseases.  See Michael Pollan’s “In Defense of Food”.
