You probably already know that whole grains are good for you, but do you know why?
According to the Whole Grain Council, whole grains, or foods made from them, contain all the essential parts and naturally-occurring nutrients of the entire grain seed. If the grain has been processed (e.g., cracked, crushed, rolled, extruded, and/or cooked), the food product should deliver approximately the same rich balance of nutrients that are found in the original grain seed.
