“The key takeaway of this review is that Americans need to know the many benefits of including both whole grain and refined grain foods in their diets, while also understanding what types of grain foods – what I like to call ‘indulgent grain foods’ – to limit,” said Glenn Gaesser, PhD. The study, “Do Refined Grains Have a Place in a Healthy Dietary Pattern: Perspectives from an Expert Panel Consensus Meeting,” was undertaken to broaden understanding of the contributions of not just whole grains, but also refined grains, to the American diet. Removing either whole and refined grain foods from the diet can exacerbate nutrient inadequacies and results in more children and adults falling below recommended nutrient intakes as identified by the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. By reviewing scientific data published since the release of the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGAs) on nutrient intakes, diet quality, enrichment and fortification, and associations with weight-related outcomes, panel experts unanimously concluded that not including sufficient refined grain foods in the diet can have unintended consequences.

Picky Bars, which has taken a pure e-commerce-based approach, has a subscription and loyalty program called the Picky Club, in which customers can customize shipments with their mix of products.
