Grains Contribute To Healthy Aging, Study Finds

May 29, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

A study published in a scientific journal confirms that bread and cereals contain many nutrients that contribute to successful aging. Researchers analyzed data from surveys of more than 4,500 adults over 50 conducted between 2011 and 2014 regarding their consumption of all grains, especially focusing on vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber. They found that grain foods contribute less than five percent of total saturated fat and less than 15 percent all calories yet comprise 14 percent of all energy in the total diet. Grains are among the most nutrient-rich foods in terms of dietary fiber, iron, folate, magnesium, calcium, thiamin and niacin. The study was published in the journal Nutrients.[Image Credit: © U.S. National Institutes of Health]
