The excellent part about Whole Grain Granola is that it features two whole grains: wheat and oats. Whole grains include all three parts of the grain (bran, endosperm and germ) so you’re getting all the good nutritional benefits from the whole grain wheat and oats in this one meal. And, these grains are good sources of both soluble and insoluble fibre.
