Why are whole grains so powerfully healthy and life-giving? The magic lies within. The first question to answer though is what is the difference between whole and processed grains. The difference-maker between these two are that processed grains are missing some of its most nutritious elements. Meanwhile, whole grains contain all of their God-given nutrition and other health benefits.

God's beautiful design for our food: 
Whole grains have an edible portion called a 'kernel'. This core contains three major components: bran, germ and endosperm. The most important parts from a health-perspective are the bran and the germ- precisely what processed grains are missing! Since these are removed during the milling process, the only remaining part is the endosperm. The missing elements account for processed flour’s smooth texture and shelf life. But, without the bran and germ, the flour is also devoid of the all the key nutrients such as fiber, iron, and B vitamins.

Whole grains include all three parts of the kernel and provide us with all the nutrients that God intended for us from these foods such as healthy complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, healthy fatty acids and antioxidants.

As you discover the reality in what has been stripped away from our foods in mass-market processing, you begin to see why we at Be Still Farms are so passionate about eating and providing food like whole grains as God intended them- unprocessed, whole and healthy!
