Growing grain is something you rely on for your livelihood, and grain, in all of its many varieties, is something consumers rely on for nutrition. But not all grains were created equal. Whole grains such as wheat, corn, rice, oats and rye offer a host of health benefits that make them an essential part of a daily diet.
Consumers are increasingly aware that fruits and vegetables contain disease-ﬁghting phytochemicals and antioxidants, but many do not realize that whole grains are often an even better source of these key nutrients. They also have some valuable antioxidants not found in fruits and vegetables, as well as B vitamins, vitamin E, magnesium, iron and ﬁber.
The medical evidence is clear that whole grains offer a diverse range of health benefits including:
— Promote better blood sugar control for people with diabetes
— Help lower cholesterol and blood pressure
— Help prevent memory loss and heart disease in aging
— Promote better sleep
— Help control weight, because they make you feel full
— Help reduce the effects of certain inflammatory diseases, such as asthma
