 You have probably heard about how whole grains should be in every healthy diet. However, most americans don’t consume the minimum servings per day or even worse, they don’t even eat them.

It may sound redundant but there are many benefits of ingesting whole grains and at Great Harvest in Tulsa, we would like to tell you some of the most important reasons to consume whole grains. 

Whole Grains


Whole grains keep the most nutritious parts of the grain like the bran, germ and endosperm, unlike processed grains that remove these parts to extend the shelf life. Besides keeping the most beneficial substances, whole grains are also a great source of fiber. Don’t forget that the USDA recommends 6-8 ounces of grains each day! So don’t forget to include them in your diet.

Prevent Diseases


Studies have found a strong correlation between the consumption of whole grains and many health benefits -  it reduces the risk of heart disease, lowers the chance of certain types of cancer and it’s involved in a good digestion. 

Identifying Whole Grains


Not all those products you see in the supermarket contain whole grains, you should look for a stamp that certifies the product. Beware of words like multi grain, bran or enriched flour, they don’t describe whole grains.

Now you know it! Including whole grains in your day is part of a healthy lifestyle and we can’t overstate its importance. So next time you are doing your groceries, choose products that contain whole grains.  

Forget about those bakeries that only reheat dough in their ovens - at Great Harvest, we prepare our products with freshly ground whole wheat grain flour everyday to provide you with the most delicious and healthy bread in Tulsa.
