Why should we include cereals in our diet?
FacebookTwitterGoogle PlusLinkedin
This is a fundamental food in the food pyramid because it has a great nutritional value, especially if we combine them in the same food with vegetables, in order to complete their properties. A very tasty option for example can be rice with lentils or peas.
 
Thanks to their content of starch, cereals provide the body high doses of energy. In addition, they contain vitamins B, iron, zinc and calcium and are, generally, low in fat.
 
They also have a lot of fiber, especially if they are whole, that is, they have not a refinement process. This will help us prevent constipation and colon cancer.




 
On the other hand, the iron that they possess, of vegetable origin, is not assimilated as easily as, for example, the meat because it contains filatos. However, these substances disappear when the cereal loses its bran, so that the iron will be absorbed much better.
 
As a disadvantage, cereals don´t contain vitamin A, B12, C and D.
