What is whole grain and why is it good for you?

Whole grain can only be found in cereals such as wheat, rye and oats and is grain with no parts removed, not even the husk. You use it in many different ways; as fine or coarse-ground wholemeal flour, flakes or the entire grain. We have several types of bread and Swedish toast that are baked with whole grain.

Whole grain is good for many reasons:
- It contains a lot of fibre
- It is an important source of iron and vitamin B
- It has a positive effect on blood sugar levels and cholesterol
- It may reduce the risk of diabetes, colon cancer and cardiovascular diseases
