5 Grain Goodness
Frequently Asked Questions
Whole-grain kernels have three parts:
Bran: The hard, outer shell. It contains fiber, minerals, and antioxidants.
Endosperm: The middle layer of the grain is mostly made up of carbohydrates.
Germ: This inner tip has vitamins, minerals, protein, and healthy plant fats.
Whole grains may be processed in multiple ways such as rolled, crushed, or cracked. But as long as the three components are present in their original proportion, they’re considered “whole”. Refined grains have had the germ and bran removed, leaving only the endosperm – this leaves it high in carbohydrates and stripped of its natural fibre and many nutrients. The high fibre content of whole grains make them helpful for controlling multiple lifestyle related conditions such as high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, constipation and chronic inflammation.
If you carefully read the labels of many packaged foods (including kids cereals) you will find additives like BHA, BHT and TBHQ in the mix. These are artificial anti-oxidants added to extend shelf life and prevent rancidity.
While they are antioxidants they aren’t like the good antioxidants in fruits and whole grains but synthetically made and have a controversial reputation. As per studies conducted by many research organisations including National Toxicology Program of the United States and International Agency for Research on Cancer (part of WHO) these additives are potentially carcinogenic (may cause cancer). The European Commission has placed BHA as a category 1 potential endocrine-disruptor (leading to hormonal imbalances).
While the US FDA allows these chemicals to be used in controlled quantities, BHA and BHT are banned from foods in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Japan and throughout Europe. At Bagrry’s we believe in doing right by our customers and stay away from artificial antioxidants, instead we use tocopherols (vitamin E) and soy lecithin which are natural antioxidants and preservatives.
We recommend that Bagrry’s Choco Plus be stored in a cool, dry & odour free place. Once opened, it is important to store contents in a well-sealed container to eliminate the risk of infestation and to retain freshness.
