What is the difference between whole grain and multi-grain?
Asked by clayntina99 on Feb 21, 2010 in Nutrition




Answer

'Whole' grains are cereal grains (wheat, rye, oats and barley) that contain all parts of the grain – the bran, germ and endosperm - as opposed to 'refined' grains that retain only the endosperm.  Multigrain refers to the fact that more than one grain is used in the product, but those grains may or may not be whole grains containing the bran and the germ.
