Benefits of Whole Grain / Wholemeal

Recommended by the Singapore Health Promotion Board, wholegrain foods contain all three layers of the natural grain - the outer bran layer, the inner germ and the endosperm. Such grains are full of vitamins, antioxidants and fibre. They also have been shown to reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart diseases, diabetes and certain cancers.

In contrast, white flour is from grains which had their bran and germ removed. As a result, much of the vitamin B1, B2, B3, E, folic acid, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, iron, and fibre is lost. Eating white flour regularly increases the risk of diabetes and other chronic diseases. White breads, pastas, noodles and cakes are usually all made of white flour. With the fibre gone, white flour also causes blood sugar levels to rise rapidly. Thus, regular intake of white flour easily leads to problems with diabetes and other diseases.

But where can we find our daily sources of whole grain? They can come from a variety of sources, such as whole-grain breakfast cereals, oatmeal, chapati, whole-grain biscuits, brown rice and whole-grain breads.

Studies have shown that whole grains can:
  • Protect against certain cancers
  • Reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes
  • Improve bowel health and regularity
  • Lower cholesterol and blood pressure
  • Protect against heart disease and stroke
  • Prevent blood sugar levels from rising fast
  • Provide essential nutrients such as fibre, folate, vitamin E, magnesium, B vitamins, zinc and antioxidants.
