The USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends three whole grain servings a day. In order for a food to be called 'whole grain' it must contain all of the grain's edible parts: the bran, germ, and endosperm. The FDA recognizes whole grain benefits in the approved claim, "Diets rich in whole grain food and other plant foods, and low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers." All Eden Organic Flakes are 100 percent whole grain food, with nothing taken away or added.
A major study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, yet again confirmed the critical role of whole grain to health. "Eating half a cup to a cup of whole grain breakfast cereal may help lower your blood pressure. It may help lower your risk of diabetes and heart disease," said the research leader, Dr. Luc Djousse of Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
