5 Health Benefits of Eating Organic Bread

5 Health Benefits of Eating Organic Bread


Breads are basically one of the universal foods available wherever you go. It is affordable and can complement a meal or make a meal possible whenever bread is necessary. The many types of bread products easily creates a wide range of options for your consumption needs, and the quality remains a major detail in whether or not you want to eat it. It is even more important to know why organic breads, such as those available at Klosterman Baking Company, are not only healthier but generally better for the earth.

Why Organic Differs from Other Options

To be certified organic, the bread must use ingredients that are free of pesticides, chemicals, and genetically modified organisms. This ensures that non-foreign and unwanted substances stay out of the final product. These foreign substances are linked to cancers and other health problems that may affect those who consume them, especially when consumed over a long period of time.

The Science behind Whole Grains

The process requires that the milled grains not have husks or other parts removed before milling. A greater amount of protein, vitamins and minerals will be left in the final flours used to bake the bread. The nutritionally dense and heartier results of these breads makes them ideal for those who want to have a great tasting option that is also filling.

Weight Loss as a Side Effect

Eating organic and whole grain breads makes it possible to lose weight due to the fact that you feel fuller with less food. You can then spend less time thinking about eating and get the benefit of losing weight by maintaining a better balanced diet that you are less likely to cheat on.

Better Digestion with Organic Breads

Not only does using whole grains make bread have more substance, it also retains bran fiber to help you feel fuller and help keep you regular with your bowel movements. This alone may impact the lives of many who are constantly constipated who avoid breads and other products that compact in their bowels due to the heavy processing they go through. Organic breads have minimal processing, which makes them easier to digest and provide the benefit of allowing more nutrients to be absorbed with your body’s natural digestion processes.

Straight from Farms to Breads

Reduction of chemical treatments, genetic modification and other unnatural processes to commit the grains to flours for breads mean that organic bread takes far less processing and reduces the impact on the earth. Lower energy use, prevention of chemicals leaching into the ground water and decreased risk of damaging wildlife by preventing genetically modified organisms getting into the wild really helps to maintain a more natural earth.

7 Ways You Know You Come From A Family Of "Foodies"

My family is food-centric, and that brings us together.

Growing up, it has always been rather apparent that my family lives a rather food-centric lifestyle. There are certainly no complaints here--from a rather early age I acquired an appreciation for food and I've gotten to eat in a number of incredible restaurants.

My family definitely wears the title of "foodies" proudly, although my dad certainly champions this concept. Whenever friends and family are taking a trip to somewhere we've been, my dad's the go-to guy for recommendations. I've taken on this role slightly as well by giving recommendations to non-local friends in the Philadelphia area.

Growing up in a family of foodies comes with a unique appreciation for food as not only sustenance but as a way of bringing people together. So, here are some of the characteristics that make foody families so unique:

1. Vacations aren't planned around the sights you see, but rather the restaurants you eat in.

Anytime anyone asks me where to eat, I'm flattered. Apparently, my reputation precedes me. Not only am I well-versed in Yelp when I don't know an area, but when I do know the area I always have favorites. When I am asked for recommendations, however, I have a tendency to go a little overboard and send far more than the circumstance warrants.

4. Your camera roll is filled with food pictures.

Birthdays. College acceptances. Reuniting with old friends. No matter the occasion, the best way to celebrate is with good food.

6. Meals are a form of stress-relief.

This picture was taken the day I finally decided where to go to college--a decision that had bee plaguing me for months. Nothing helped cure the stress of that decision better than a good meal.

7. Food brings your family together.

With crazy schedules to coordinate, meals are one of the times my family gets to get together and catch up on everything. Growing up, we always had family dinners almost every night (when schedules allowed), and we've continued this into college as often as we are able. Having a family who values food, we see it as a time to connect with one another.
