The Whole Grain—What is It, Anyway? Look for the Whole Grain Stamp on specially marked Arrowhead Mills® products! 

So what does Whole Grain actually mean?  And how do you find it in your grocery store? The Whole Grains Council www.wholegrainscouncil.org suggests that you look for products with the Whole Grain Stamp, a special packaging symbol now on hundreds and hundreds of products—including all Arrowhead Mills® products that qualify.
Whole grain contains three layers:

  • Outer layer (bran) holds up to 80 percent of the grain's total mineral value, including B vitamins and most of the fiber;
  • Middle layer (endosperm) contains protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals; and
  • Small inner core (germ) houses concentrated amounts of B vitamins, vitamin E, protein, trace minerals, "good" unsaturated fats, antioxidants and phytonutrients—which cause damage from free radicals in the body.

Whole Grains Taste Good—and They're Good for You, Too
The Whole Grains Council says "consuming whole grains instead of refined grains may lower the risk of many chronic diseases."  The Council recommends that you consume at least three servings of Whole Grains per day because "Diets rich in whole grain foods and other plant foods and low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers."

Arrowhead Mills® Uses Ancient Whole Grains
Arrowhead Mills® brand captures the essence of what families were meant to eat: wholesome and nutritious products made from ancient whole grains.  These nutrient-rich grains not only add texture and nutrition—they also offer great taste!  Good health, good food, good taste:  That's what Arrowhead Mills® brand is all about. 

  • Amaranth
    For centuries, the Aztecs and American Indians have known about the wonderful nutritional benefits and diverse uses for the tiny seed-like grains.  In comparison with other grains, amaranth is high in the amino acids lysine, cysteine and methionine, which are all required for normal cell function. 
  • Barley
    Barley is the world's oldest grain.  As incredibly nutritious as it is, it was first brought to the New World to make beer!  The rich supply of fiber not only helps your digestive tract to function at its best, but it also may help to lower cholesterol. 
  • Blue Corn
    Evolving from Central American ancestry, blue corn was the most prized grain of the Pueblo tribes.  With a coarser consistency and a sweeter, nuttier taste than yellow or white corn, blue corn boasts a high protein content, and it's wheat and gluten free.
  • Bran
    Oat bran and wheat bran are high in both soluble and insoluble fiber.  The soluble fiber helps maintain cholesterol within normal limits, while the insoluble fiber helps aid digestion and may reduce constipation.
  • Buckwheat
    Indigenous to Central Asia, this plant is a nutrition powerhouse! Despite its name, buckwheat is not wheat—it's a cousin of rhubarb and contains 1,000 mg antioxidant rutin per 100 grams .  Rutin is known to protect against free radical damage.
  • Kamut®
    Derived from the ancient Egyptian word for "wheat," this grain was discovered thousands of years ago.  Kamut® delivers rich flavor and great nutrition, making it a valuable addition to any diet.
  • Millet
    The smallest of all grains, millet has been cultivated since 4000 BC. With its complete protein and low-fat composition, this is truly a wheat-free gem!  Millet contains many nutrients including dietary fiber and thiamin (vitamin B1) and magnesium, which are beneficial and important nutrients.  In addition, millet is a wheat-free grain and consistent with gluten-free diets.
  • Oat
    First grown in Western Europe, this grain spread to other parts of the world because of its ability to survive in poor soil conditions.  Pure oats—and the vital bran they contain—are some of the best available natural sources of soluble fiber, a powerful nutrient known to help maintain healthy blood cholesterol levels.  Oats contain a specific type of fiber known as beta-glucan, which research has shown can reduce the risk of heart disease. 
  • Rice
    The second-largest world crop, rice is a staple food in Asia.  Unlike most grains, this grain is traditionally grown on small paddies and harvested by hand—just as it has been for centuries.  Brown rice is the whole rice kernel, higher in fiber, vitamins and minerals than white rice.  Brown rice is higher in fiber than white rice.  In addition, brown rice is high in selenium, which is a trace element nutrient that functions as cofactor for reduction of antioxidant enzymes.
  • Rye
    Popular in its native lands of Russia and the Ukraine, this hearty grain is a bread-making favorite.  Rye is particularly high in insoluble fiber, which is known to keep your bowels moving and may have a detoxifying effect.
  • Soy
    Soy is a good source of good-quality protein, thiamin, potassium and iron.  The iron in soy is known for being particularly well absorbed compared with iron from other plant sources. Soy protein and isoflavones have many benefits. Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 25 grams of soy protein a day may reduce the risk of heart disease.
  • Spelt
    An ancient cousin to modern wheat, delicious and nutritious spelt was one of the first grains to be grown by early farmers as long ago as 5000 BC.  The fiber found in spelt may help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
  • Wheat
    The true American grain staple, wheat has always been the grain of choice for most people.  Wheat has a complex nutrient profile including protein, carbohydrate and vitamins and minerals.  Wheat is a good source of dietary fiber, which helps reduce constipation but also helps to make you feel full.  Wheat is rich in manganese and copper, two minerals that are essential for your body

Living the gluten free Lifestyle.

Arrowhead Mills® brand is committed to providing the foods and ingredients our customers need to live a nutritious gluten free lifestyle. Gluten is made up of specific proteins found in some grains, including wheat, rye and barley. Many Americans adhere to a gluten free diet because they have Celiac Disease—an inflammation of the lower intestine—are gluten intolerant or simply choose to live a gluten free lifestyle. Arrowhead Mills® brand has carefully developed a vast array of gluten free ingredients products that come right from our kitchens to yours to help make living a gluten free lifestyle easy and enjoyable.

The gluten free Symbol—Our Guarantee of gluten free Foods
Since gluten is an inherent part of certain grains, rather than an ingredient, many products on your grocers' shelves contain gluten but don't list it on the product label. This makes choosing gluten free foods and ingredients tricky and confusing! That's why we clearly display the gluten free symbol on all Arrowhead Mills® products that qualify—our personal guarantee that these foods and ingredients are truly gluten free. And since we know how important dietary concerns can be, we go the extra mile to make sure you can completely trust the integrity of our products. For example, we run rigorous tests to be sure that nothing we call gluten free contains any gluten, and we carefully monitor our production facilities to be sure that there is no possibility of cross contamination. In short, we prioritize the purity of your food, so that if the gluten free products you're eating come from Arrowhead Mills® brand, you can rest easy knowing they're completely safe—and entirely in line with your dietary needs.
