How to Cook Whole Grains


Fiber-rich whole grains contain all three parts of the natural grain: the bran, the germ and the endosperm.

Because nothing is removed during processing, whole-grain foods contain more natural fiber, vitamins and minerals than their refined grain versions.

Because of their nutrition content, they should be a regular part of a heart healthy diet.

Learn how to cook whole grains in this video from American Heart Association's Simple Cooking with Heart program.
