Until recently nutrition scientists and diabetes specialists believed that all carbohydrates behaved in predictable ways: Simple sugars, which are readily digested and absorbed, were thought to produce dramatic rises in blood sugar, which in turn would require an outpouring of insulin to be processed. In case of presence of diabetes mellitus these cereals can be used as a diet food. Aside from providing nutrients, antioxidants and fiber, whole grains are also absorbed more slowly in our bodies (compared to refined grain, like white bread and rice).
