In this mornings blog post I made the statement that the wheat we are eating today has been genetically modified. Not having a medical or chemistry background some of what I read in the Wheat Belly book I did not completely understand. However, I did understand that our modern wheat has been changed and that is why we are having a lot of medical issues because of it. I called it genetically modified. The proper terminology rather than genetically modified is actually wheat has been hybridized, which is actually worse than genetically modified.
As I was preparing for tomorrow’s dinner, chopping onions and celery, roasting nuts etc. I was thinking about today’s post and a thought popped into my head. I wondered if there is non GMO flour available rather than the gluten free blends. ( I was going down the wrong road there but didn’t know it.) I thought there are other non GMO products out there like corn chips etc. so I was curious. I grabbed my ipad and looked it up. What I found when I put “non GMO flour” into Google was a post by Dr Davis on the WheatBellyBlog.com about this confusion of terminology. Evidently I am not the first to make this mistake, I just do not want to misstate anything which is why I am posting this correction. After reading the article, technically, there is no GMO flour on the market today which is why I said I was going down the wrong road. So now I wonder is the non GMO flour listed for sale on websites just regular flour (that has been hybridized) with their producers taking advantage of consumers confusion? I don’t know but I will just continue using my gluten free blends.
Sorry for the mistake, I look forward to “talking to you” next Wednesday. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
