management 2 MyPyramid Recommendations: Grains Eat six 1 ounce-equivalents of grain products daily (for a 2,000 calorie diet): Make at least half of grains whole grain The rest of your grains should come from

enriched or whole grain products. 3 Definition: 1 ounce equivalent In the grains food group, group a 1 ounce-equivalent is the amount of a food counted as equal to a 1 ounce slice of bread. Equivalents include: 1 slice bread cup cooked pasta, rice or cereal 1 cup ready-to-eat cereal 1 mini bagel

English muffin 1 small (2- diameter) muffin 3 cups popcorn 1 small (6) flour or corn tortilla 4 Definition: Whole grains Whole grain foods are made from the entire grain seed (usually called the kernel)

which consists of: Bran Germ Endosperm If the kernel has been cracked, crushed, or flaked, it must retain nearly the same relative proportions of bran, germ, and endosperm as the original grain to be 5 called whole grain. Gains with whole grains Refined grains have been milled the bran and germ are removed.

This process also removes much of the B vitamins, iron, and dietary fiber. fiber Most refined grains are enriched. This means certain B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folic acid) and iron are added back after processing. Fiber isnt added back to most enriched grains.
