Before we proceed further, let’s have an idea what whole grain is? Any grain is mainly sub-categorized into two groups – whole grain and refined grain. Whole grain preserves all three parts called:
Bran: Outer shell of grain which is packed with fiber, antioxidants and numerous minerals.
Endosperm: After that comes this second or middle layer which generally contains carbs.
Germ: Innermost layer provides plenty of vitamins, protein and plant compounds.
Whereas, refined flours are mostly stripped off germ and bran, leaving only the endosperm to achieve finest texture, color and extra life of flour. Once you develop the habit of consuming whole grain in your dietary, you will find them full of nutrients, nice texture and most importantly the flavor which circulate energy in your body.
