in the lower intestine and only there is absorbed into
its walls. It fills the body with strength, is beautiful

Semolina contains a lot of gluten. This protein is also called
gluten. Many people are gluten intolerant, it causes
they have celiac disease – a severe hereditary disease that occurs
about one in 800 Europeans. Influenced by gluten
in celiac patients, the intestinal mucosa becomes thinner
and the absorption of all nutrients is impaired, especially
fat. Gluten can cause allergies. It also manifests itself
Semolina contains phytin, and phytin contains phosphorus,
which binds calcium salts and prevents them from entering
into the blood. The level of calcium salts in the blood of a person should be constant – approximately
10 mg per 100 ml of serum. As soon as the salt becomes
less, the parathyroid glands “seize” them
made of bones. It turns out that semolina deprives them of calcium.
Therefore, children who are heavily fed with semolina (according to
2-3 servings a day), often get sick with rickets and spasmophilia.

than semolina. That is why doctors now recommend feeding
babies first with vegetable puree.

starch carbohydrates, which semolina is rich in. Mucopolysaccharide
gliodin contained in semolina causes necrosis

so that it is unable to absorb vitamin D and iron,
necessary for the growth of the child. All the troubles that
conceals semolina in early childhood, they are not at all scary
