I hear lots of people saying you shouldn’t eat it.

One of the problems with modern wheat is that it now contains five times as much gluten as the old pre-war wheats. So for many people who could previously eat wheat, they will now react to the excess gluten. Gluten makes the loaf rise more effectively, so high gluten wheat makes bigger loaves for less wheat, great for the commercial bakers, not so great when it causes more people to become gluten intolerant.

The other thing to remember about wheat, is that it is a highly bred grass plant, but nonetheless, grass. We are primates, evolved not as grazers of grass but as browsers of fruit, leaves and roots, and occasional meat eating too.

If you want to know if wheat is a problem for you, take your pulse for one minute before and soon after eating it, if your pulse goes up more than 3, you have a level of intolerance to it, and might be better cutting down or eliminating it from your diet. If you feel drowsy after lunchtime sandwiches, or get bloating or wind, those indicate wheat doesn’t suit you.
