There has been no shortage of information being spread by every means about the harms of carbohydrates for your health. And yes, some carbs do worsen some digestive disorders for some people. Not to mention that overeating of carbs can definitely contribute to poorer health and obesity.
But so does the overeating of many types of different food.
Cereals have been major foodstuffs for millennia. And for much of the world’s population, they make up over 50% of people’s diets.
However, not all cereals or cereal products are created equal. By changing the way cereals are produced, processed and consumed, it’s possible to harness their benefits to improve diets around the world. These changes could even tackle the problem of micronutrient deficiency (also known as hidden hunger). This affects two billion people globally and is caused by lack of quality, not quantity, in their diets. Tune in next week for the second part in this series for Tuesgrains as we explore the situation and how Western Australia can play a part in a better outcome for the future.
