My husband bought this pancake mix. He argued that it was something I could have. Ingredients:unbleached unbromated wheat flour, whole wheat flour,whey,dextrose, leavening, soybean oil, and buttermilk. For two pancakes the carbs read 33 and the sugar 3. We argued over this. Could you please give me some insight into if myhusband was right or me?? Thanks!!

Well, first of all, the first ingredient is not legal. You want only flour that is listed as "whole wheat" or "stone ground whole wheat".

The food industry camouflages wheat flour as either "unbleached" or "enriched" to make it sound healthier. (and they make up a lot of other terms too!) Hah. Regardless of what the "carb" count is, you need to go by the ingredients.

Personally I try to stay away from "pre-mix/processed" food... period. (Too many ingredients I can't pronounce!) I have gotten to where I enjoy preparing food from scratch. heh! wink.gif
