Why is sourdough healthier than wheat?

Sourdough is made using wheat flour, so it doesn't make sense to say that sourdough is healthier than wheat. Some sourdough breads contain more bran (fiber) than other breads, but that is not universally true.

How do you dissolve wheat grass powder?

Wheat grass powder probably causes a mixture, not a solution - so it doesn't really dissolve (combine with the water molecules to become something else). Like when you make instant iced tea - only so much can mix into the water before the rest settling to the bottom. Make sure you're not adding more than the specified amount and try a blender if you're looking for something that doesn't taste grainy or fall to the bottom of the glass.

What alcohol is wheat free?

It depends on the type of alcohol you seek.It can either be rather easy or very hard to find a gluten-free drink.

The easiest way to avoid gluten is to drink a fermented drink based on a non-grain such as fruit juice--wine or hard cider are definitely safe.

Though there is a division of opinion, the general consensus is that most hard liquor is safe. This is because, although many drinks (such as whiskeys) have grain alcohol has a base, gluten generally doesn't get passed through distillation. This also means neutral spirit is generally safe (as is vodka), and drinks based off them (like gin, liqueurs, and absinthe) will be safe as well. There are also hard liquors based on non-grains (like rum, tequila, and brandy) that will be definitely safe to drink.

Beer will be the toughest drink to avoid gluten. This is because of the general preference among brewers for barley (which does contain gluten). There are also a number of wheat-based beers which would not be safe. Perhaps the only known beers safe to drink would be African-based beers based of either sorghum or millet. But a couple warnings. Not only are these grains hard to obtain and to brew, but their end result is of a very different consistency from your average beer.

Bagels

How many calories are in a honey wheat bagel?

My guess is a lot... depending on the size of the bagel I'd say between 300-400 ... Bagels are very dense and carry a lot of calories and carbs. I once read that a bagel is equivalent to 6 slices of regular sandwich bread or something like that. I don't eat them for that reason =)

It's actually more around 250-300 calories. If you want to know a really good site for looking up calorie information go to "calorieking.com". That's the site I use, and they have everything from famous chain restaraunt food to normal everyday things such as apples and oranges (:

Care of Rabbits
Wheat

Can rabbits eat wheat bread?

No, rabbits can't eat wheat bread. Wheat is not recommended for rabbits. Wheat is not a regular part of wild rabbit's diet, and a rabbit's digestion can't handle wheat very well: it's too high in carbohydrates, sugars, etc. No kind of bread or foods made for humans are good for rabbits. A healthy rabbit diet involves lots and lots of hay, with some dark-coloured fresh leafy greens and rabbit pellets daily. If you want to give your rabbit a treat, stick to fresh, natural foods like certain fruits and vegetables. One or two groats (like an oat groat, or a wheat berry) are okay, too, once in a while. (Note: the groat is the whole grain, with the bran -- it is not the same as foods made with whole grains, and it isn't the same as processed grains, like rolled oats). The House Rabbit Society recommends no more than two tablespoons of treat fruit/vegetable per day for a norma, healthy 6 pound rabbit. See the related question below for details and links about the rabbit diet.

Does not eating wheat and dairy help arthritis?

Most dairy product are at the lower end of the scale for purine so they can be eaten safely

Any product made with bakers yeast should be restricted in its use as the yeast is very high in purines. however wheat itself is way down at the lower end of the purine table and most wheat products depending on what they are mixed with should be fairly safe to use.
