Whole grain products provide the body with the trace elements it needs to utilize carbohydrates effectively. The body also burns approximately ¼ of the calories involved just to break down a whole grain product.

Therefore, a piece of whole grain bread is approved to contain 120 calories and 0-1 gram of fat. The label must say whole grain, not wheat flour, rye flour, etc.
