The Whole Grain Maze
Bread used to be made from either whole wheat or white flour; although, many times coloring was added to white flour to make it look darker (healthier) . Now we have “whole white bread” and many claims on the label to wade through such as 5 grams fiber, 20 grams of whole grain and 40% fiber. How do you know which is the best? What’s a person to do if we want to make half of your grains whole as recommended?
