Nutrient Deficiency In Processed Pasta and Bread vs Whole Wheat

I noticed in Kates success story she mentioned switching to whole wheat bread. This is a nice illustration of what nutrients you give up when you choose white, processed foods.

Compared to whole wheat, bread and pasta are missing:

-62 percent of the zinc
-72 percent of the magnesium
-95 percent of the Vitamin E
-50 percent of the folic acid
-72 percent of the chromium
-78 percent of the Vitamin B 6
-78 percent of the fiber

Food for thought!

I tried some whole wheat gnocchi last night and it was really good. If you choose your ww products well, you will rarely miss the white stuff.

Well, I've certainly gotten burned a few times with WW pasta - some of it has the consistency of 'fluffy cardboard'. So, if anyone has recommendations - I'm on the lookout for some pasta with good texture.

another alternative is quinoa pasta. it is great nutritionally, with a lot of natural protein, and tasty! i only cook this kind of pasta nowadays.

There's also vegetable, rice, and corn(maize) pastas. I get mine at the local health food store. These places have loads of neat alternatives, and if you find a good one, be loyal! A knowledgable staff at these places are worth their weight in gold for all the info they can provide.
