Unbromated flour maintains a healthy thyroid. Your thyroid, one of the largest endocrine glands, greatly influences almost every cell in your body. Aside from regulating your metabolism and weight by controlling the fat-burning process, thyroid hormones are also required for the growth and development in children and in nearly every physiological process in your body.
When your thyroid levels are out of balance, so are you. Too much or too little hormone secretion in this gland can spell trouble for your overall health and well-being.

A smooth light textured loaf made with only the best wholemeal gold crest flour.
Wholemeal contains the bran and the germ of the grain, which have more nutrients than the endosperm that you get with refined or enriched grains. Wholemeal grains are absorbed more slowly than foods made from enriched or bleached flour, so they raise glucose and insulin levels less and keep you feeling fuller longer.
A diet rich in wholemeal may also help steer you around cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, even gum disease.
