Whole grain cereal foods lower the risk of chronic disease and help weight control.
There is consistent scientific evidence that whole grain foods substantially lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer and help in weight management and digestive health. Working together macro- and micronutrients and phytonutrients present in whole grains contribute to their beneficial effects.
Regularly incorporate 3-4 whole grain foods into your diet every day.
