I never knowingly eat any gluten containing grains these days, whole or not, especially not wheat.

I would say whole grain only because they are finding wheat isn't that great because some people are allergic to it.

Neither. Grain is grain, and it's NOT the "healthy" food we're led to believe.

Whole grain most definitely.....and a good variety of grains ie. linseed, flaxseed, quinoa etc.

I don't know which is better, but I eat both. I believe variety is important. Each and every day we hear how what we thought was good for us, is now bad for us. It's hard to know what to believe--I'm with going sensible.

Wheat is a grain, so whole wheat is one type of whole grain. Whole grain might be a combination of wheat, oats, rye, barley, etc.

If it just says "whole wheat/whole grain," at least 51% of the weight of the product has to come from whole grains. (That doesn't always mean that there's a lot of refined flour; you could have "whole grain" rolls that are 70% whole wheat and oats, 5% white flour, 10% egg, 10% milk, and 5% honey and spices, for example. But usually there's at least some refined flour.) Most sandwich-type bread and most pastas will fall into this category because it's hard to get the right texture without at least a little refined flour.

If the label says "100% whole wheat/whole grain," that means it can't have any refined grain. It doesn't literally mean that whole grain is the only ingredient; there will still be eggs or water or sugar and so on.

So, "100% whole" whatever is better than just "whole," but whole wheat and whole grain are just different, not better or worse.

This is all for the US. Different countries have different rules.

Whole grain. "Whole wheat" is kind of a lie. More often than not, it's just brownish-coloured white bread.

Whole grain can be misleading, too.... you want to look for "100% Whole Grain."
