We all know we’re supposed to eat grains for our daily nutrition. However the question remains, which grains are actually the healthy ones?

A lot of recipes call for all-purpose white flour. White flour doesn’t hold much for nutritional value so we’d recommend using whole wheat flour instead! The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends that you should intake six 1/2 cup servings of grain a day. White flour has been very heavily processed, loosing its nutrition, whereas wheat flour hasn’t undergone the same processes keeping its value intact.

Another great reason to use whole-wheat is it’s fiber content. Fiber helps regulate your digestive system, lowers blood cholesterol, and can promote weight loss. According to an article by Louise Tremblay, 1/2 cup of white flour contains 1.3 grams of fiber, while an equal serving of whole-wheat flour contains 6.4 grams. As a result, selecting foods that contain wheat flour helps you reach your dietary fiber intake goal.

This is such a simple and easy tip that will greatly benefit your diet without sacrificing any taste. Try it in your next muffin recipe!!

We would like to make you aware of some minor packaging changes over the next few months. While we have seen a surge in demand for Rodelle Vanilla this year, the recent pandemic has caused many disruptions in the packaging supply chain. At times, you may notice a different color cap or a different type of bottle when you buy our vanilla. Inside the bottle is the same Rodelle Vanilla with the taste and quality that you have come to trust over the years.
