Look for Whole Grains Stamp

Want to add whole grains to your diet, but not sure what to buy? Look for the “Whole Grain” stamp on food packages.

The basic stamp means the product contains at least 8 grams – a half serving – of whole grain, according to the Whole Grains Council, a nonprofit consumer advocacy group. The 100 percent stamp indicates that all of the grain ingredients are whole grains.

Studies show that people may lower their risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes by eating whole grains, according to the Whole Grains Council. Additionally, researchers have found that eating whole grains can help people achieve their weight loss goals.
