Researchers looked at salads dressed with saturated fat (butter), monounsaturated fat (canola oil) and polyunsaturated fat (corn oil).

Soy - Pitas- Calcium rich and an easy way to beat Osteoporosis

Whole SOY -Wheat Pitas
Osteoporosis isn’t like a small deal. It’s a huge deal. It doesn’t take a major trauma to break osteoporotic bones, and fractures related to this devastating disease are a leading cause of hospitalization, disability, and even death. 
Did you know that an adult over age 50 who fractures a hip has a one in four chance of dying within one year? - 
Well here is one lady's quick fix to get some calcium into your body - tastily!
Soy flour contains about six times as much calcium as whole wheat flour. It contains no gluten, so in general it’s not a good choice for bread, but for a flatbread that’s not as critical. 
The words “raw” and “green” kept leaping to mind and happily, the baked pitas taste great. Their yellowish color was a tipoff that these were not your average wheat pitas, but otherwise you’d never have known. -

Yield: 8 pitas Time: Mix and ferment sponge: 1 hourMix final dough: 10 minutesFerment: 1.5 hoursDivide, rest, and roll out: 15 minutesBake: 2 – 3 minut…
