Today, we’re going to talk about white sugar and white flour. Which one is worse?

I want to note that when I’m talking about sugar, I’m talking about cane sugar. When I’m talking about flour, I’m talking about regular white wheat flour.


• Glycemic Index – 63
• Sugar becomes a pure carbohydrate without nutrients
• Depletes essential nutrients


• Glycemic index – 71
• When flour is refined, it becomes a pure carbohydrate without nutrients
• Most flour is fortified, but not with the nutrients you really want
• Depletes essential vitamins and minerals
• To make flour, they use dough conditioners
• To make flour, they use benzoyl peroxide
• Contains potassium bromate
• Contains gluten

When compared, it does appear that overall, there are more problems with white flour than with white sugar. But, both white flour and white sugar are going to create similar effects with a spike in insulin, such as:

• Weight gain (belly fat)
• Fatty liver
• Complications of a prediabetic
• Insulin resistance
• Diabetes
• High cholesterol
