Whole grains on food labels
To be sure that you are really getting whole grains, look for the word "whole" or "whole-grain" before the grain's name as the first ingredient. Don't be fooled by terms such as "wheat flour," "unbleached wheat flour," "stone-ground," "multigrain," "stoned wheat," and "cracked wheat." None of these terms guarantees that the product is whole grain.
