Most people will admit that pancakes are delicious but with all the ingredients like processed flour and sugar used to achieve that, they might not be the best option for your breakfast. The added sugars and fats used to prepare them can result into weight gain if one consumes them frequently. According to CDC, sugar is an inflammatory promoting agent that creates an environment for a microbiome responsible for speeding the aging process.

Nitrates are associated with higher chances of heart disease.
