Technical Abstract: Health professionals need to continue to emphasize the importance of shifting eating patterns to replace refined grains with whole grains. This review touches on the importance of incorporating whole-grain into diets for health purposes, and also examines potential changes in whole grain consumption within the context of the entire food system. Increasing whole grain intake not only promotes better health but can improve production and resource use on farms.
