Organic Grain

What you need to know

Grains play an important part of our meals and the nutritional advantages of WHOLE GRAIN shouldn't be overlooked. WHOLE GRAINS are high in complex carbohydrates, very low in fat and contain no sodium or cholesterol. One cup of any of our cooked grains contains between 16 and 20g of fibre. That's 2/3 to 3/4 of your daily nutritional requirement. Wheat bran provides an insoluble fibre that helps improve elimination and reduces the risk of developing colon cancer.

The Canada Food Guide recommends grain products be consumed between five and twelve times per day. One serving is equivalent to one slice of bread, 3/4 cup hot cereal, one cup of rice or pasta, or one bagel, pita, or bun.

The U.S. Dept of Agriculture's Food Pyramid recommends whole grains be served five or more times per day to help prevent the development of many of today's chronic illnesses.
