Parents Guide - List Of Grains

Maggie LaBarbera • RN, MBA • Feb 12, 2012
 

The grains group are made up of two main groups:

  • Whole grains
  • Refined grains

You can buy grains that you can eat in its natural state and other grains require cooking before you can eat them.  

Grains can be purchased from bins or prepackaged.  There are also foods that are made from grains that you can buy.

As a general rule, brown grain food products are whole grains and white grains have been bleached and processed.  But always check the food label and look for the "100% whole grains".  This has the most fiber.  However, some grains are enriched so they do have vitamins and minerals and some grains may also have bran added.  Bran provides fiber.  Take a moment and read the label.
