Types of Grains
Wheat, oats, rice, corn, barley, sorghum, rye, and millet are all different types of grains. But not all grains are the same.
‘Wholegrain’ consists of all the elements of a grain kernel (whole wheat has the same meaning as whole grain). They are usually grains that you eat in their natural state – they have not been altered in any way – giving you the best nutritional, mineral and vitamin value you can get.
Some whole grains are a fantastic source of fibre. This is good to know if you are looking to increase or decrease fibre in your meals. Fibre is very important as it helps your body process food in a healthy and effective way, keeping you regular and energised. Working the benefits of grains into your diet is easy and affordable with the BOKOMO range of cereal options.
