Whole Grain Goodness

Bob's Red Mill is an excellent source of whole grains.

As diabetes is on the rise in the United States, it has become more and more important to eat a diet rich in whole grains.  Because the shelf life of whole wheat flour was considerably shorter than it's bleached and processed counterpart, bread and other manufacturer's turned to removing the bran and germ from wheat flour to make their breads and other wheat products.  However, this caused these products to have an impact on American's insulin levels and was most likely a contributing factor in the nation's diabete's epidemic.  At Harter House, we have numerous options to get whole grains back in your diet, including the wonderful Bob's Red Mill brand of products.  Their cereal's are a terrific way to get all your whole grains and they taste great too!  We especially enjoy the thick and creamy Steel-Cut Oats that has a heartier texture than it's counterpart, rolled oats, and has far more fiber helping reduce the risk of heart disease.  Try some today!
