Seven whole grains on a mission. It’s more than just a tagline — they’re the very words Kashi lives by. Read on to find out what exactly makes up a whole grain. And finally, learn what nutrition and health benefits Kashi seven whole grains have to offer.
What exactly are whole grains?
Simply put, they are small, edible seeds that come from grasses such as wheat and barley. As long as all of the grain components are present, from the outer shell to the “germ” deep inside, whole grains can be ground, cracked, or flaked, and still retain their benefits.
Grains are made up of three main components: the bran, the endosperm, and the germ.
- Bran, or outer shell, protects the seed and provides fiber, B vitamins, and some trace minerals.
- Endosperm is most of the inner body of the seed . It is rich in protein and carbohydrates—basically a concentrated energy source.
- Germ makes up the remaining part of the seed; it contains vitamin E (a potent antioxidant) as well as other antioxidants and B vitamins.
All of the grain's nutrients, phytochemicals (health-protective components of plant foods), vitamins, and minerals work together to help you stay healthy. Unfortunately, some food makers and restaurants rely mainly on refined grains, in which the seed is stripped of its bran and germ (and the bulk of its nutrients), leaving only the endosperm’s carbohydrates and protein. In some instances, food makers will attempt to enrich these refined grains by adding back some of the vitamins and minerals that were lost during processing.
When they make foods at Kashi, they always strive to preserve the nutrients that occur naturally in their ingredients. The 7 whole grains in their blend are minimally processed, which means every part of the grain—along with its nutrients—are included, so you get a great nutritional bang in every bite.
At Kashi, they dream of a world where everyone embraces natural health. They are passionate and committed to improving the health of people and the planet.
Health isn't a destination; it's a journey. Every little step one takes creates a healthier path forward. Kashi believes that when we eat well, we feel well, and do well for ourselves, our families, our coworkers, our communities, and the world. This philosophy builds on Kashi's deep roots in natural foods since 1984 and remains their daily guiding light. Kashi is constantly evaluating and improving the environmental and social aspects of their ingredient sourcing, product production, packaging, and distribution. They strive to not only minimize their impacts across their value chain, but to create positive impacts and positive change with everything they do, creating a legacy of sustainability and health. Simply put, Kashi strives to improve the health of people and planet, every place they do business.
