Italian Study Backs Heart Benefits of Whole Grains

June 15, 2009: 05:01 AM EST
An Italian study has added weight to the claim that wholemeal wheat foods help to control cholesterol levels. People who consumed wholemeal wheat products for three weeks reduced both total and “bad” cholesterol levels compared with a group eating refined grains, according to research team leader Rosalba Giacco. Eating whole grains could help reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and type-2 diabetes, the researchers said. The research team came from Italy’s National Research Council (CNR), Federico II University (Naples), Barilla G&R F.lli. SpA (Parma), and the University of Parma.
