The Whole-Grain Intake Recommendation Group has commenced meetings, with initial discussions to outline a plan for research. What are the key health outcomes relevant to whole-grain intake, which should be considered in collating evidence on recommended quantities of whole-grain intake? What are the confounders requiring review, including dietary factors such as refined grain intake? The research plan needs to include not only substantive literature summation and review on the whole-grain intake and health outcomes, but also a plan for how this literature is relevant in different populations, and how any information associated with whole-grain recommendations would be translated into culturally relevant messaging. A PhD student will start on work to assist this group in 2024, based at the University of New South Wales, Australia.
