On the primary anniversary with the 2005 Food Pyramid recommendations from USDA, statistics demonstrate that Americans are actually slow to heed this recommendation. Only ten percent actually eat the recommended three servings of whole grain products per day. The Whole Grains Council calls this the “Whole Grains Gap.”

Fortunately, the rapidly expanding awareness on the importance of whole grain products is starting to generate a positive change.

“The new food pyramid gets some credit, but grain have earned new respect nowadays through a parade of studies that report their role in lessening the risk of heart problems, stroke, hypertension, certain cancers, diabetes and obesity,” said Dr. Julie Miller Jones, an expert in nutrition and Ph.D. in home based economics/food science and nutrition.

Whole grain foods include pasta, breakfast cereals and breads made with grain and wholegrain flours from wheat, barley, rye, corn, oats and brown rice and a lot of other grains for example amaranth, bulgur and quinoa.

Miller Jones says eating more grain should be easier than eating extra servings of fruits and veggies.

“Because were already eating breads and also other grain products, it’s a matter of substituting whole fiber products within the products created from highly refined flours we’re also at present consuming,” said Miller Jones.

Finding recipes rich in dietary fiber now is easier than ever. For example, Fleischmann’s Yeast has established about 100 delicious kitchen-tested wholemeal recipes under its goodfibes seal. These recipes haven’t any less than 0.8 grams in addition to being much as 2.0 grams or maybe more of fiber per ounce of bread.
