Until recently, finding whole grain products was difficult. All of our 100% whole grain breads are low in saturated fat, a good source of fiber and even certified. Choose from either soft or hearty-textured breads. Whole grains are packed with nutrients including protein, fiber, B vitamins, antioxidants and trace minerals (iron, zinc, copper, and magnesium). A diet, rich in whole grains has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity and some forms of cancer.
Those suffering from coeliac disease or wheat intolerance may still be able to eat some whole grains. If you think you may have an intolerance or allergy do speak to your GP - it is important to be properly diagnosed before omitting an important food group from your diet. Grains which don't contain gluten include rice, corn, buckwheat, millet and quinoa. And a lot of people with coeliac disease may be able to tolerate pure, uncontaminated oats. Again, this should be considered on an individual basis with the support of a health care professional.
