Replacing Refined, White Flour with Whole Grains
Foods made from whole grains are just that, WHOLE. They contain the entire grain kernel consisting of all three parts: the bran, the germ, and the endosperm. The bran and germ contain important antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and fiber that do not exist in refined, white flour.
