Heart Beat: Stamp of approval
Stamp of approval
If you are trying to include more whole grains in your diet but have trouble figuring out what qualifies, help is on the way. A voluntary whole grain stamp sported by a growing number of grain products can save you from poring over the tiny print on food labels.
What are whole grains?
They are foods that contain a grain's fibrous bran, starchy endosperm, and vitamin-rich germ. Examples include whole or cracked wheat, oatmeal, brown rice, barley, popcorn, and an assortment of whole-grain breads, cereals, pastas, and crackers.
