If you want whole grain products look for the yellow stamp from the whole Grain Council on the product. Multi Grain Cheerios, Low sodium Triscuits & Old Fashioned Quaker oatmeal have the stamp. Quiona is considerered a whole grain, but is a seed with two times as much protein as other grains. Hulled Barley has the same type of fiber as oatmeal.

I learned this from the Eat This, NOt That books. Read carefully when buying breads and things. If it says "wheat bread" or "made with wheat" or "made with whole grains", it is NOT WHOLE WHEAT/GRAIN. It just has some thrown in, and the rest is just processed white flour. It must say "Whole Wheat" or "100% whole wheat" for it to really be whole grain.
