Wheat is primarily a source of carbohydrates, which make up 85% of its composition. The body breaks them down into glucose, which slowly enters the bloodstream and nourishes cells with energy. Wheat groats help to normalize the acid-base balance of the body, and due to the high content of choline, they improve the functioning of the digestive system and reduce blood cholesterol levels.
