Wheat and other cereal grains as sources of carbohydrates (CHOs) and other nutrients are the focus of a series of reviews coauthored by AACCI member Julie M. Jones and members of the CIMMYT Global Wheat Program. The sixth review (Cereal Foods World July-August 2016 issue) examines the relationship of CHOs and their cereal grain sources to brain health. An overview of the scientific evidence shows that CHO-rich, grain-based foods contribute the energy and glucose required for brain metabolism and deliver vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that are important in helping to prevent damage to brain tissue and maintain optimal cognitive functioning.
