Biscuits in Piles: Good or Bad?

Biscuits are bad in piles or hemorrhoids. Even for healthy adults.

When I was a child, I loved biscuits. But now? I avoid them. 😔

Because, biscuits are made from refined flour or maida. And maida is made by processing the healthy whole grain flour.

While processing, the manufacturer stripped almost all fiber, vitamins, and minerals. For this reason, they can be considered as “empty” calories or “white poison”.

For this reason, their glycemic index is very high and foods made from refined flour or maida digested quickly. [1]

This means they can spike your blood glucose and insulin level quickly.

Evidence showed that eating high glycemic foods can lead to overeating and increase the risk of many diseases, including constipation. [2]

Did you know biscuits are made from 70 to 80 percent of maida? 

Yes. So, biscuits are evil for your overall health, including piles or hemorrhoids.
