What is a whole grain food?

All grains start life as whole grains. In their natural state growing in the fields, whole grains are the entire seed of a plant. This seed is made up of three edible parts—the bran, the germ, and the endosperm—protected by an inedible husk that defends the kernel from assaults by sunlight, pests, water, and disease. A grain is considered to be a whole grain as long as all three original parts—the bran, germ, and endosperm— are still present in the same proportions as when the grain was growing in the fields.
