How to use the Carbs to Fiber 10:1 Ratio
Whole grain products range from whole grain breads to sugary cereals. So how can you really know what a healthful whole grain food is? Research from the Harvard School of Public Health gives us a very simple trick to use: the 10:1 Carbs to Fiber Ratio.
Aunt Millies Best Grains Non-GMO Breads
It’s simple. For every 10 grams of carbohydrates in a product, there should be at least one gram of fiber. 10:1 is approximately the ratio of carbs to fiber in a genuine, unprocessed whole grain.

The calculation is easy. Look at the nutrition facts on a product, and divide the grams of carbs by 10. Then look at the amount of fiber. If the amount of fiber is greater or equal to your calculation, then the product meets the 10:1 ratio, and is a healthful whole grain.

For example, say a product has 21g of carbs and 6g of fiber, divide 21 by 10 (21/10). This equal 2.1. Because 6 is greater than 2.1, this product is considered a healthful whole grain and an excellent source of fiber.

Many Aunt Millie’s products meet the
 10:1 Carbs to Fiber Ratio.
