What is the Nutritional Value of the Wheat in Linette® ?
Linette contains 'soft' wheat flour. As a cereal wheat contains 65.8% carbohydrates, of which 2.4% are total sugars. Carbohydrates are the main source of energy used by the body. They are broken down into glucose which is mainly used to:
- Provide Energy to the body, especially the brain
- Store as glycogen as energy reserves in the liver and in the muscles
- Be converted into amino acids, fats and other carbohydrates
In addition, wheat is rich in dietary fibre (9.6%) that plays an important role in intestinal transit. They increase the feeling of satiety and thus allow us to eat less. Thanks to their water retention capacity they sitmulate the contractions of the intestine and promote bacterial activity
