Grains especially whole grains that are less processed, provide a variety of nutrients your body needs for good health. An increased consumption of wholegrains is associated with a significantly reduced incidence of cancer and heart disease. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and fibre.

Low GI Grains include Buckwheat, Spelt, Quinoa, Rye, Wild Rice, Barley and Bulgar.

Grains combine well with pulses - when eaten together their amino acid patterns combine to provide more protein than when eaten individually.
