Winner Regional News Notes By: Ann Schwader Field Specialist Healthful Whole Grains We hear a lot about whole grains, including the USDA's My- Plate (http://1 .usa.gov/1Wf8piu) message that recommends we make at least half our grains whole, but there may be individuals who won- der why it's important to eat whole grains. According to MyPlate, "Peo- ple who eat whole grains as part of a healthy diet have a reduced risk of some chronic diseases." Whole grains contain three parts: the bran, the germ and the endosperm. Refined grains such as white flour, white rice and white pasta only contain the endosperm. The bran is the outer shell that pro- tects the seed. It contains B vita- mins, fiber and trace minerals. The germ has B vitamins and vitamin E. The endosperm provides carbo- hydrates and protein which deliver energy. Eating the entire grain al- lows the benefits of all three parts to work together. You'll want to be sure that the products you choose are actually made from whole grains. Look for one of the following terms listed first on the ingredient label: Brown rice, bulgur, oatmeal, quinoa, rolled oats, whole grain barley, whole grain corn, whole grain oats, whole rye, whole wheat, and millet, to name a few. Eating more whole grains provides energy for daily activities and low- ers the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers. Tips & Techniques The following tips are helpful to adding more whole grains in your daily food pattern. **Try 100% whole grain snack crackers. **Pop- corn is a whole grain snack.

Try whole wheat pasta or brown rice. **Use whole grain bread to make French toast; it has a hearty texture and tastes great. **When making meatloaf or meatballs, use whole grain bread or cracker crumbs. **Try an unsweet- ened, whole grain ready-to-eat ce- real as croutons in salad. **Use a crushed, unsweetened whole grain cereal or rolled oats as breading for baked chicken or fish.
