Refined grains are grains that have had the bran and germ removed, leaving behind only the endosperm. Refined grains include popular products like white bread, white rice, and pasta, and are often lower in fiber and important nutrients than whole grains. While refined grains can be a convenient and tasty addition to many meals, they have been linked to an increased risk of health problems like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain types of cancer. Choosing whole grain products like whole wheat bread, brown rice, and quinoa can help to promote better health and wellbeing.
