19% of Flours at Supermarkets in Sydney are Whole Grain
Many dietary guidelines recommend that people make at least half their grains whole, yet little has been published on the availability of whole grain options at supermarkets. In a February 2020 audit of the ﬂour aisle at four major supermarkets in metropolitan Sydney, researchers identiﬁed 130 diﬀerent ﬂour products. Of those, only 19% were whole grain ﬂour. The majority of products were reﬁned wheat ﬂour. Not surprisingly, the whole grain ﬂours contained signiﬁcantly more ﬁber and protein.
