Expert Nutrition Panel Publishes Recommendation On Standard Definition For Whole Grain Foods

Stocks in this article: GIS

According to the USDA 2010 Dietary Guidelines, Americans should consume at least half of all grains as whole grains, and increase wholegrain intake by replacing refined grains, with whole grains. 1 Nine out of 10 Americans currently do not get the recommended servings of whole grain. 3 Recommendations to increase whole grain intake are not limited to the U.S., Mexico, Canada and Australia are among several other countries around the globe that recommend increased whole grain intake.

Eating adequate amounts of whole grain is associated with healthier body weight and, potentially, protection against cardiovascular disease.  Today, whole grain can be found in many cereals, granola bars, crackers and pastas. 2

The abstract of the published report can be found online at Advances in Nutrition.
