When it comes to shopping the whole grain products it takes so long to finalize and come to decision of buying. Now below are some amazing tips and points to bear in mind  while shopping for whole grains .

When you enter the super market with the aim of buying whole grain products, it's easy to get inundated with labels which claim they are all whole grain, but in actuality they are just partial whole grains and brown artificial colour mixed with a blend of white flour. Right from pastas, breads, soup sticks to cereals, in order to choose the right whole grains you have to be certain about these points... 

- Be aware of what types of whole grains are available in the market. Some whole grains are made of barley while others are made of buckwheat, whole wheat, oatmeal, millet and barley.  

- Read labels before buying any of the whole grain products. Ideally, whole grain products should have multi grain, rye, whole wheat, pumpernickel.  

- Never believe marketing gimmicks like 'made with whole wheat' without further explaination, as these products are often refined. As mentioned above, check for the ingredients and also keep an eye on the percentage of the whole grain in the product.  

- Some white whole wheat bread includes albino wheat, which is a variety of wheat with a much sweeter and milder flavour.  

- Make sure that when you are buying regular whole wheat bread its label mentions red wheat which is dark in colour, has a slightly sour taste. 
- Check for the fluffiness and freshness of the whole wheat products because ideally they are a bit softer in texture because they go through an extra processing step.
