Have you had your whole grain today?
According to studies, we should be consuming 3 servings / 48g of whole grain per day to achieve a better quality of diet and higher intakes of important nutrients like fiber, B-vitamins, and minerals such as Iron and Magnesium. Sadly though, 99% of Filipinos don’t even reach this amount.
That’s alarming, isn’t it?
But Why Whole Grains?
Daily intake of whole grains also lead to the following benefits:
- lower body weight
- lower cholesterol levels
- reduced risk of diabetes and other chronic diseases
Contrary to popular belief, it is actually not that difficult to achieve the right amount of whole grains per day.
