As we head into our third Whole Grain Week , we're conscious of the significant unrest around the world, relating both to the current pandemic and systemic racism, providing us all with an opportunity to reconsider what we value in life.

Reconsidering how we eat is part of that, with panic purchasing pushing flour sales and baking at home to a new level of popularity. Whole Grain Week this year is all online with major TV networks playing our Community Service Announcement featuring the Sprout duo - Callum Hann of Masterchef fame and APD, Themis Chryssidis. You can join us by taking the challenge to SWAP to whole grain , and enjoy a variety throughout the day. The aim is to reach the 48g target and just 3 serves should get you there, swapping at breakfast, lunch and dinner…

We’re focusing on ancient grains in this newsletter as they become more and more popular as flours, intact grains and as ingredients too. We also look at sprouting, with new international whole grain guidelines set to include sprouted grains. And finally, check out the whole grain product features brought to you by our friends at Bakers Delight and Uncle Toby's.

Wishing you all the best,

Dr Sara Grafenauer
General Manager

It's that time of year again where we're celebrating all things whole grain! This year we've teamed up with Sprout duo Callum Hann and Themis Chryssidis to spread our message about the benefits of swapping to whole grains. Did you know that enjoying 2-3 serves of whole grains every day can reduce your risk of certain chronic diseases by 20-30%! So take the #wholegrainchallenge with us - watch our video with Callum & Themis here and see just how easy it is to make the swap.

Spotlight on whole grains
We're exploring all things whole grain with a closer look at the two key trends in grains - sprouted and ancient grains. Enjoying a variety of grains is beneficial for our overall health and both sprouted and ancient grains can play a part in helping you reach the 48g daily target.
