Whole Grain Week

Did you know just two slices of our Hi-Protein Wholegrain Loaf can help you hit the recommended 48g Whole Grain Daily Target Intake?

The 48g Whole Grain Daily Target Intake is the amount of whole grains you should aim to eat daily as part of the #wholegrainchallenge, run by Grains, & Legumes Nutrition Council (GLNC) during their Whole Grain Week (June 15 – Jun 21).

GLNC are passionate about sharing the key role whole grains play in a healthy diet and through Whole Grain Week, they aim to inspire Aussies to swap refined grains for whole grains.

Eating whole grains offers a wide-range of health benefits including:

  • Reduction in risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke and some cancers
  • 80% higher iron and zinc levels compared to refined grains
  • 3 x the fibre content compared to refined grains
  • Aids digestion
  • Keeps you fuller for longer

Making the switch to whole grains is easy at Bakers Delight with our wide range of delicious whole grain and wholemeal bread. We have worked with GLNC to show our customers which of our products are full of nutritious whole grains and how they can help you reach the daily target of 48g.
