About Whole Grain Goodness
An independent, not-for-profit campaign
Welcome to Whole Grain Goodness, which is an independent, not-for-profit campaign. Here you’ll find everything you need to know about whole grains, including how they’re beneficial to your health and delicious recipe ideas.
Launched in 2004 by AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds, this campaign about whole grains aims to increase awareness of the culinary and nutritional benefits of whole grains (e.g. whole wheat and oats) as part of a healthy balanced diet, and to inspire people to eat them every day.
There are a variety of delicious whole grains widely available that are simple to include into everyday life and they can offer many nutritional benefits. For example, whole grains are a good source of fibre and public health advice encourages eating more as part of a healthy balanced diet. UK government guidelines recommend that adults should aim to eat at least 30g of fibre each day; but currently people are only managing about 18g.
