Public Health England has had no discussions with the Danish Whole Grain Partnership on increasing whole grain intake.

There is no agreed definition for the term wholegrain. Therefore, Government dietary guidelines do not give specific advice for wholegrain intake.

Government dietary advice, as depicted by the Eatwell Guide, is that people should choose whole grain or higher fibre versions of starchy carbohydrates wherever possible. The Eatwell guide can be found at the following link:
