Ingredients: potato powder, potato starch, modified food starch, vegetable oil. Is it healthy?

REALLY UNHEALTHY!!!: This is recipe for disaster. Potatoes are in the environmental working group's dirty dozen foods-they're high in pesticides if not organic & are readily converted to sugar so raise blood sugar, causing weight gain & increased risk of diabetes. Generic "vegetable oil" is almost certainly corn, soy or canola which are all gmo if not organic & very toxic, fried potatoes have carcinogenic acrylamides. ...Read more

Is it ok to eat organic sprouted wheat berry and sprouted flaxseed bread during pregnancy?

Is it ok to eat organic sprouted wheat berry and sprouted flaxseed bread during pregnancy?

OK if no gluten-sens: This is ok unless you are among the 1% of people with celiac disease or the 10-20% who have non-celiac gluten sensitivity. See http://abt.Cm/1dopk3o some nutritionists advise everyone limit intake of grains, even whole grains, as too much starch is not healthy for anyone, but i feel sprouted bread is a healthy choice for most people in moderation. See http://bit.Ly/gagviu for further discussion. ...Read more

Is ground flaxseed a grain or whole grain.

Is ground flaxseed a grain or whole grain.

No- not a grain: Ground flaxseed is a seed, not a grain. Whereas 75-90% of the calories found in grains come from carbohydrates, only about 20% of calories in flaxseeds come from carbs- the rest is (healthy) fats and proteins. Only eat freshly ground flaxseed or it is likely to contain rancid oils. See http://whfoods.Com/genpage.Php?Tname=foodspice;dbid=81. ...Read more

Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?

Does not matter: Since 90% of the cholesterol is produced by the body regardless of your diet, the above would not noticeably affect your cholesterol level. Do note that too much carb may not be good for your health. I don't believe extreme diet does anyone any good. Just eat anything in moderation and exercise at least 3 hrs a week will likely keep you in better shape. ...Read more

Iam gluten free gaining weight why if i avoid all bread items i eat chicken beans beef along side salad no dressing rice or corn cereal fruits?

Gaining weight: That's great that you are not consuming a lot of carbs and are watching your diet. You also need to look at the overall quantity (and calories) of what you are eating as well. Are you exercising too? Without physical activity (cardio), it is hard to lose weight. You have to burn more calories than you are consuming. You might be doing this already and have another reason for weight gain. ...Read more
