Q and A

Q: Can eating whole grains help lower my chances of getting Type 2 diabetes?

A: Yes, according to a recent study by the University of Eastern Finland and the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare. The study, published in Nutrients, found that one serving of whole grains per day reduced the incidence of Type 2 diabetes when compared to those who did not eat whole grain foods daily. Whole grains include grains such as brown or wild rice, quinoa, oatmeal, whole wheat (in bread, crackers and pasta), farro, barley and teff. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends 3 to 6 servings of whole grains per day.
