With so many mentions in The Bible, one would come to the conclusion that indeed bread should rightly be the cornerstone of man’s food supply.
Trouble is the bread referred to back then, used even as a symbol of the body of Christ at The Last Supper, is definitely NOT the bread we have available today. Pound for pound, it’s the least expensive thing in the supermarket. Even whole wheat bread is relatively inexpensive and very often on sale, but that too is a deception. The grain used to make bread is refined,
redesigned and redefined to suit not the nutrient needs of the consumer, but the financial needs of the producer. That is definitely NOT what God intended!
From an article on AmazingDiscoveries.org:
Bread has been called the “staff of life.” But because most folks consume grain in its refined state, this staple contains virtually no nutritive properties and cannot support animal or human life. “Fortified” grain products are also useless and deceptive.
Wheat is the key ingredient in the American diet. But after being milled, it is seldom utilized in its whole form with its components intact. Invariably, when we eat wheat, we get it in the form of bread, pies, cakes, cookies, biscuits, spaghetti, cream of wheat, cereals, and other forms that have been treated, heated, fractioned, and fragmented until it is next to impossible to recognize it for what it was originally.
A refined grain, or its product, is made by processing a natural, whole grain so that some or most of the nutrients are lost. Almost all grain products have been refined in some way or another.
White rice, cream of wheat, cookies, and bowls of snap-crackle-and-pop each morning are all examples of refined grain products.
