Whole grains contain peel full of fiber, which causes the sugar to not increase rapidly in the blood, as in the case of processed grains.
Fibers help cholesterol lowering and eliminate waste through the digestive tract.
Fibers also prevent the formation of pieces of blood that threaten the heart and brain from shock.
With the “invention” of industrial mills, the processing of cereals has changed, it is easily milled and digested faster. But in this form they offer very little nutrients, meaning that such processing removes half of the B vitamins, almost 90% of vitamin E and all the fiber. This is the essential difference between processed and whole grains, which then affects our health.
