Slowly But Surely Americans Are Eating More Whole Grains

August 31, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
For a long time, Americans pretty much ignored federal dietary guidelines and advice from nutritionists and health experts to eat more whole grains. But the tide is turning, according to the Whole Grains Council. The majority of Americans are now eating more whole grains than they did back in 2010, and at least half say half of the grains they eat are whole grains. A poll of U.S. consumers found that 64 percent have increased whole grain consumption "some" or "a lot" in the last five years. And two-thirds of those who mostly choose whole grains now have increased their whole grain consumption “a great deal” compared to five years ago. The WGC says the next step is to get Americans to go beyond bread, cereal and brown rice when they buy whole grains, and look for spelt, farro, amaranth and teff.
