Whole Grain Stamps

Have you seen this little stamp yet? There are 2 versions and they are helping consumers identify foods made with whole grains. It's recommended that everyone aims for at least 48g of whole grains each day.

The stamp to the left means that the product contains half a serving, about 8g of whole grain. The number "8g" on this stamp is just an example. The number will be different depending on the product.

This label to the right means that the product is made with 100% whole grain, offering 16g per serving. This stamp is the one you want to see.

Eating just 3 servings of products labeled "100% Whole Grain," will get you your whole grain fill for the day. If the label just says "Whole Grain," you'll need to eat 6 servings to get your daily dose.

I love these stamps. Anything that makes eating healthy easier has my vote.
