What is the difference between a whole grain and a refined grain you ask?!
-WHOLE GRAIN=processing removes only the indigestible outer hull, preserving the nutrition-packed bran(antioxidants, minerals, vitamin B, fiber) and germ(the grains embryo rich in B,E, Antioxidants, Unsaturated fats)
REFINED GRAIN=processing strips away the bran and germ—leaving behind only the soft, easy-to-chew endosperm that’s rich in starch but not much else. (Starchy carb, some protein, some vitamin B) None of these foods are bad! You just need to keep them on a sliding scale in and out of your diet! –
