A List of Common Whole Grains

Which Foods Are Whole Grain?

So everyday we hear that we're supposed to be eating whole grains for our health. It's always, "whole grain this" and "whole grain that." But let's get down to the basics. Which foods are considered a whole grain anyway? To make the guessing process a little easier I've gathered a list of the most common whole grains and flours (when consumed in a form that includes the bran, germ and endosperm) used in foods today.

They are:

  • Amaranth
  • Barley
  • Buckwheat
  • Corn, including whole cornmeal and popcorn
  • Millet
  • Oats, including oatmeal
  • Quinoa
  • Rice, both brown rice and colored rice
  • Rye
  • Sorghum (also called milo)
  • Teff
  • Triticale
  • Wheat, including varieties such as spelt, emmer, farro, einkorn, Kamut, durum and forms such as bulgur, cracked wheat and wheatberries
  • Wild rice
