Goodness of Grain
Whole grains have been a staple of the human diet for thousands of years and for good reason. Whole grains are a great source of carbohydrates, protein, dietary fiber, antioxidants and other nutrients. In short, they provide a powerful fuel to boost physical performance whether you are an elite athlete or a child or adult with an active lifestyle. Whole grains have also been shown to have many health benefits -- reducing risks for stroke, type 2 diabetes and heart disease plus better weight maintenance. Most Americans don't get enough whole grains in their diet compared to recommended requirements. Ardent Mills is working to change the game by having the broadest portfolio of whole grains, in addition to traditional and organic flours.
