Our expert says:
Strictly speaking Wholegrains = grains that have not been processed and sifted to remove the endosperm and husk and thus still contain a high level of dietary fibre, vitamins and minerals. However nowadays foods that contain a lot of dietary fibre and vitamins and minerals (some of which may have been added back into the product), are also regarded as wholegrains products. Examples of wholegrains are unsifted maize meal, crushed wheat, samp, and crushed sorghum. Examples of the more processed wholegrains are baked goods and breakfast cereals with a high dietary fibre and nutrient content such a All-Bran, muesli, wholewheat and low-GI breads, and Pro-Vita and other crackers with a high dietary fibre content. Live yoghurt indicates that a yoghurt still contains live beneficial microorganisms like Lactobacilli which were used to ferment the yoghurt. However, the Lactobacilli in most standard yoghurts are dead because the products is treated after fermentation to preserve the yoghurt (i.e. either with pasteurisation or the addition of small amounts of antibiotics).
