When grains are refined, the “bran” and the “germ” are removed, reducing the nutrient content of the grain. That’s why it is better to consume a whole grain which contains all three parts of the grain –Bran, Endosperm and Germ. Choosing a product of 100% whole grain has powerful health benefits with large quantities of vitamins, minerals and fibre as compared to processed products like refined flours and cereals.
Consuming whole grains in a balanced amount is an important part of a healthy diet. Having 3 servings of whole grains daily is required to fulfil the fibre requirement of the body.
