Despite the common opinion about the value of this product, the chemical composition of semolina is much poorer than that of any other grain.In its essence, it is a product of wheat grain processing, but not brought to the consistency of flour, but offered on sale by larger particles.

For the sake of fairness, it should be noted that in a small amount it still contains:

  • vitamins - B, E, PP and Kholin;
  • minerals - magnesium, iron, sulfur, potassium, phosphorus, nickel, aluminum;
  • a huge amount of carbohydrates, as well as starch, due to which it is a cheap way to quickly and for a long time to satisfy hunger.

Interesting! Given such facts about the component composition, it's easy to guess that the useful properties of semolina are clearly overestimated and the propaganda of its use during the USSR was more likely to pursue one goal: to feed the population cheaply.

The use of semolina

However, some value of the product still exists:

  1. Russian Food

    Russian Food

    In gastrointestinal diseases - gastritis, ulcers, semolina, it has an enveloping and, as a consequence, a calming effect.

  2. For dental problems or during recovery from severe diseases and surgeries, semolina is the only available way of eating and fast recruiting.
  3. It is suitable for use in the presence of kidney disease, when a protein-free diet is selected.
  4. Use such a product as an absorbent to softly remove slag and harmful substances from the body, if they are concentrated in the organs of the digestive tract.

Important: so that semolina has a beneficial effect on your body, you need to use it, boiled on water( not on milk!), Without salt, sugar or any other additives.Such food is unlikely to be enjoyed by small children, and healthy adults, so it is not worth using it as a substitute for full-fledged breastfeeding - this technique took place during the Soviet era.Also, do not abuse such porridge during pregnancy, especially in cases where signs of late toxicosis or excessive weight gain are detected.

If you still like this mess, you definitely need to know what is harmful to semolina:
  1. Obesity, as it contains a lot of starch, and it is an "empty" carbohydrate.
  2. The presence of digestive problems, in particular, the body's inability to break down the grain gluten.

Also frequent consumption of semolina porridge leads to the fact that active calcium is removed from the blood, the absorption of nutrients, including fats and iron, is reduced.All this can cause further problems of hematopoiesis.

Important: there is another opinion that semolina can contribute to clogging the stomach, but there is no absolute scientific confirmation of this.One of its components - starch, really has the property of swelling and binding of other substances, but croup is not used in dry form, so this kind of harm is somewhat far-fetched.
