Grains – even non-GMO and organic grains – are detrimental to our health. Wheat is the world’s most consumed grain. Wheat causes spikes in blood glucose even more so than sugar. Consuming wheat has been linked to obesity, diabetes, heart disease and even dementia. Today’s wheat is high in amylopectin A, a carbohydrate that is converted to glucose faster than any other carbohydrate. It has been found to be a potent appetite stimulate because the rapid rise and fall in blood sugar causes constant hunger. When people quit eating wheat they typically consume about 400 fewer calories a day.
Omega Buns are prepared with all gluten-free ingredients, but are currently produced in a home bakery where gluten is present. In the future, our goal is to produce Omega Buns in a certified gluten-free environment.
