Ever wondered why food products labeled “whole grain” still show refined grains in the ingredient list? The US Food and Drug Administration allows any food product that contains at least 51% whole grain to be labeled as “whole-grain” (in the US only). To assure you are getting what you want, make sure the product is labeled “100% whole grain”.
PositiveTip: Don’t be fooled by “whole wheat” or “whole grain” labels, which can be up to 49% refined grain! Get on the whole grain train.
