The term ‘whole grain’ doesn’t refer to one particular type of grain. Rather, it means an entire grain, with all three of its parts intact. Oats, rye, barley, wheat, brown rice, quinoa, millet and many other grains can be whole grains, as long as their parts are all present.
Compared to refined grains, whole grains have more nutrients like minerals, vitamins, dietary fibre and antioxidants. So by including more whole grains in your diet, you’ll be getting more of these vital nutrients and making sure you’ve got the wholesome energy you need.
As a general rule, most people should try to eat 3-6 serves of whole grains every day (this is about 48g of whole grains).
The UNCLE TOBYS name and logo has significant historical significance, it was designed by Nellie Love, the niece of Clifford Love – the founder of UNCLE TOBYS, who was a keen artist and a student of literature. She suggested the name and designed the logo based on the great literacy character in the “Life of Times of Tristram Shandy” by Laurence Sterne, first published in 1759. In the book Uncle Toby is a gentle, uncomplicated lover of his fellow man. The original design of Uncle Toby standing with the Widow Wadman has seen little changes over the years, so has become a treasured representation of the UNCLE TOBYS heritage.
