    " In speaking of the nutritious property of farinaceous food, and the proper state in which it is most easily digested, he gives the following excellent advice : "Hot bread never digests"

    Anyone care to comment?

    What is "farinaceous food"? Anything with wheat flour in it?


    Seemed like a very short article to me.....

    On the other hand: The wholesomeness of bread does not depend upon whether it is hot or cold. From 1897 - nearly 40 years after Blunting's claim.
    The consensus appears to be that the claim is bunk: here. (If you speak English, but true if you speak Russian!)
    (I wonder how "hot" the bread is by the time it reaches the stomach. I wonder how long it remains "hot" in the stomach).
    Farinaceous = consisting of/ containing starch.

    Interesting link about Russia.

    Actually my interest arose from the fact that I have a small hernia that me and my doctor are "watching"

    When my gut gets swollen it is uncomfortable and I wondered if it might be exacerbated by eating fresh bread as I always have ** to eat it out of the oven (I make it every other day,rye bread as it happens when I noticed the extra large swelling)...

    ** obviously I don't "have to" but I always like to test the new loaf and it always tastes best straight out of the oven...well the crust does.
