RE: Concept of whole food

Whole foods are foods that are unprocessed or unrefined.
Think of the wheat kernel as an example. Most foods you can buy in the grocery store which use wheat are using it after the bran has been removed, and the germ has been removed... basically what is left is the white fluff, it is only part of the original food, not the WHOLE food... And to make it more illogical, we then have to enrich it with added vitamins! We take all of the fiber out of our grains so they are nice and light and fluffy, and we all have to buy metamucil! The whole food is the full grain... Brown rice, brown everything , actual fruits and vegetables rather than fruit flavored juices and vegetable flavored sauces.
