How much should we eat? Eating at least three or more one-ounce equivalents of whole grains daily can reduce the risk of some diseases, according to the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. These guidelines are published every 5 years by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. "So, if we want to do ourselves some good, eating three or more servings of whole grains each day can help us achieve a healthy diet," says David Acheson, M.D., the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) associate commissioner for foods. FDA's Role FDA is responsible for regulations and activities dealing with the proper labeling of foods, including ingredient statements, nutrient content, and health claims. FDA also offers guidance to help manufacturers understand what the agency considers appropriate for statements on food labels, including those related to whole-grain content. What Are Whole Grains? Whole grains are cereal grains that consist of the intact, ground, cracked, or flaked kernel, which includes the bran, the germ, and the inner-most part of the kernel. Some examples of whole grains include whole wheat, oatmeal, whole-grain cornmeal, brown rice, whole-grain barley, whole rye, and buckwheat. Spelt, often thought of as a unique whole grain, is actually a member of the wheat family. When trying to select products that contain whole grains, look for those that show whole grains listed first on the ingredient list. The ingredient list on a food label shows ingredients in the order of the most abundant by weight. For products such as bread or pasta to be labeled whole grain, the grain can be ground, cracked, or flaked, but it must retain the same. proportions of bran, germ, and endosperm. A Daily Dose of Whole Grains Eating at least three one-ounce equivalents of whole grains per day can reduce the risk of several chronic diseases. Examples of a one-ounce equivalent include: • 1/2 cup cooked oatmeal • 1/2 cup cooked 100% whole-grain pasta • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice or whole-grain barley • 1 regular slice of 100% whole-grain bread • 1 cup of whole-grain ready-to-eat cereal (flakes or rounds) or 1.25 cup puffed. Probiotics Aka...friendly or good bacteria. One widely used defini- tion of probiotics developed by WHO (World Health Organization) is: "probiotics are live microorganisms, which when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host." Probiotics foods date back to ancient times as fermented foods and cultured milk products. Examples of pro- biotic foods are: yogurt, fermented and unfermented milk, miso, tempeh (nutty, dense soy bean cake), some' juices and soy products. Probiotics are used to prevent and treat some illnesses and to support our general health. They are often used as complementary and alternative medicine. Probiotics are important when: • Gas, bloating and diarrhea result from the use of anti- biotics, as the antibiotics destroy the "friendly bacteria" in our gut. • "Unfriendly" disease-causing microorganisms (bacteria, yeasts, fungi ad parasites) disturb the delicate balance within our body. Medical researchers are exploring the value of using probiotics for many diseases: ie; infectious diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, treating H. Pylori, which causes most stomach ulcers and other chronic stomach inflammation. Michael W. Barton, D.D.S. General Dentistry 836-2223 Route 89 • Graeagle FAMILY DENTAL CARE Bruce H. Lee, D.D.S.
