I can not believe how many people I meet each week that complain about how bad they feel after they eat flour. So why do they do it? Good question - easy answer ---- availability, ease, cost and industry standard. Flour in it wholesome form is amazing but for some reason we have decided to pulverize it to nothing. I know as a child if we ran out of glue my mom would whip up some paste out of flour and water. It would hold anything. So what do we expect it to do the stomach.
