Promote Whole Grains Month – and Fiber, Too

Whole Grains Month is a great time to promote MyPlate’s message to make at least half of your grains whole grains. When you do, remember fiber, too!

Surprisingly, eight out of 10 consumers mistakenly believe that “whole grain” on a product label means the product is a good or excellent source of fiber.1 In reality, the inherent fiber content of whole grains and whole-grain foods varies widely, which means people may not get the fiber they expect – or the health benefits, according to a position paper by the American Society for Nutrition.2

Tip: Confusion about the fiber content of whole grains may fuel the fact that about 95% of Americans don’t meet daily fiber recommendations.3 Advise people to make doubly-good whole-grain choices by checking the Nutrition Facts panel for options that are at least a good source of fiber (3 grams or 10% DV per serving).
