I have been doing a lot of comparisons lately. Multigrain and whole wheat are two totally different things and I think it’s important to know that. Whole grain means that all parts of the grain are used. Multigrain means that something contains more than one type of grain, although none of them may necessarily be whole grains. The same goes for other variations, such as the term “seven grain.”
Whole-grain foods are a healthy choice because they contain nutrients, fiber and other healthy plant components found naturally in the grain. If you read the ingredient list, it is always a good sign when there’s the word “whole” in front of things such as oats or wheat. Think about that next time your at the grocery store.
