Benefits of Eating Gluten-Free Whole Grains

September 21, 2018

Author of The Complete Gluten-Free Whole Grains Cookbook, Judith Finlayson, believes there is absolutely no reason why people (no matter what their age) should be denied the benefits of eating whole grains just because they can’t tolerate gluten. There are many delicious gluten-free whole grains, from amaranth to wild rice, and all contain a wide range of health-promoting nutrients. Moreover, they are delicious.

Their flavors vary from earthy and slightly grassy to nutty and sweet. All are appetizing on their own, marry well with a wide variety of seasonings and add taste and texture to any dish. Research has linked eating whole grains with a wide range of health benefits.


Studies show that regular consumption of whole grains:

• reduces the possibility you will develop Type 2 diabetes

• makes it less likely you will have a heart attack

• helps to keep your blood pressure under control

• reduces your risk of having a stroke

• lowers your risk for certain types of cancer

• assists with keeping your weight under control and helps to ensure that you have a healthier waist-to-hip ratio

• helps to keep your cholesterol levels low
