We are used to hearing about the benefits of oatmeal for breakfast, so this dish is already familiar to everyone: men who want a hearty breakfast, women who follow the figure, children who are well fed by their mothers. However, it is not necessary to limit yourself to one useful croup, because there are many great alternatives available today. For example, the very beneficial properties of gluten-free cornmeal are rich in vitamins and trace elements.
What is the peculiarity of corn porridge? We will talk about 3 important aspects that will prove its positive impact on the human body, including pregnant women, children, the elderly and those who monitor weight.
First of all, we want to mention the content of phosphorus, because corn cereal is perhaps its best source. In numerical terms: one cup of cornmeal contains 294 mg of phosphorus, which in turn is 42% of the required amount per day. The peculiarity of phosphorus is that it is necessary for the formation of our DNA, and also promotes the mineralization of bone tissue.
After eating corn porridge, you will not feel hungry for a long time and will not look for extra chocolate or cookies to have a snack. It contains a lot of fiber, which helps to fill the stomach for a long time and feel full. For example, in 1 cup corn flour - 9 g of fiber.
An important aspect to remember before consuming corn porridge is its iron saturation, which we have been told about since childhood. "Eat an apple, there is a lot of iron in it," - admit, everyone heard this phrase. But it is not necessary to look for apples, because in half an hour there is a chance to get hungry. Again, a cup of cornmeal contains 4.2 mg of iron. It helps erythrocytes transport oxygen through our body, and by activating the enzymes needed to produce energy, it stimulates metabolism.
It is important to be wary of your diet so that you can visit your doctor or pharmacy as little as possible!
