Energy value of flour products
So, first of all it is necessary to pay attention toThat such food products are called "flour" due to the use in the process of cooking flour. And what is a meal of a set of chemicals? In 100 grams of this product contains about 10 grams of protein, about 1.5 grams of fat and at least 70 grams of carbohydrates. As you can see, the most high-calorie food components (fats) contain very little, but the amount of carbohydrates in flour is quite significant. Therefore, the total energy value of flour (approximately 340 kilocalories per 100 grams of product) is also quite high.
Another feature that must be taken into accountAll lovers of flour dishes - is that carbohydrates in the composition of such products are very easily absorbed by the human body. For example, carbohydrates in buckwheat or oatmeal porridge will not be split by the body so quickly and will be able to provide energy release during half a working day, maintaining your working capacity. But the excess of flour products on your dining table is likely to contribute to an excess of calories in your diet and, as a result, lead to a rapid increase in body fat.
If it's not just about loaves orBuns, and confectionery flour products like cookies, cakes, cakes, gingerbreads, etc., then you should also take into account that the energy value of such food is even higher than that of regular bread. This is due to the fact that in the production of flour confectionery in large quantities of sugar is used, which is almost 100% carbohydrate and is very easily absorbed in our body. In addition, many fats are added to the sweet pastry (both during the preparation of the dough and for the preparation of fillings from sweet confectionery creams), which further increases the caloric content of such products. For example, the energy value of different types of cookies already usually exceeds the value of 400 kilocalories per 100 grams of product, for cakes this figure is usually equal to 450 to 500 kilocalories per 100 grams of product, and the caloric content of some cakes may exceed even 500 kilocalories.
What is the result of excessive consumption of flourProducts that have such a high energy value? Getting an extra amount of calories, our body simply can not spend it on providing motor activity or to maintain a constant body temperature. In this case, the excess carbohydrates obtained from flour dishes, begins to turn into fats, which are then deposited in the so-called "problem areas" - on the stomach, buttocks, thighs. Naturally, the person's figure loses its former tightness and harmony.
