Healthy Life Southern Country Style Breads can help fulfill that recommendation. A wheat kernel is made up of 3 parts - the largest part of the kernel called the endosperm, the hard outer covering which is the bran and the tiniest part of the kernel, the germ, which would grow new wheat if the kernel were planted. The endosperm is ground to make white flour, but when all parts of the kernel are ground together, the result is 100% whole wheat flour which is also whole grain flour. Healthy Life Southern Country Style Breads are made from 100% whole grain wheat flour. Many other popular-selling breads contain enriched white flour, enriched wheat flour or unbleached wheat flour which are not whole grains and not 100% whole wheat. Always check ingredient listings and look for the words whole or 100% whole before the name of the grain or flour. What's so good about whole grains? Whole grain foods give you: complex carbohydrates for a steady supply of fuel to provide sustained energy when engaging in physical activity (from the endosperm); vitamins and minerals, including trace minerals and antioxidants, many of which are in short supply in our modern diets (from the germ and bran); fiber, both soluble and insoluble, to aid in good digestive health, help regulate blood sugar and make us feel full and satisfied without adding any calories (from the bran); many other natural plant compounds called phytochemicals. Scientists believe phytochemicals in whole grains, together with the vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber, may contribute to whole grains' health benefits. 100% Whole grain 24 g or more per serving.
