1A useless product

Wheat grains contain a high quantity of vitamins. But as these grains are processed, the useful properties present within them get destroyed. The premium quality of flour after being processed contains only 30% of its actual nutritive value before it was processed. These properties usually become inactive within 2 weeks’ time even though 12 months is the shelf life of flour.
