Question can salba be counted as our daily whole grain/complex carb?

anyone know? I read it can replace fruit for anti oxidents?

Re: can salba be counted as our daily whole grain/complex carb?

son1981,

I could be mistaken but I think it's a seed-grain. It's whole grain so long as it's not finely ground into flour. In my opinion, it's intended to be used more as a supplement than anything else. I think you can add a small amount to baked goods but I don't think that means it will make the baked goods a healthy choice. (They put tomatoes on pizza too; does that make pizza a healthy choice? No, not in my opinion.)

I would say it's probably just an expensive supplement that you don't need if you eat a healthy diet. There are so many other healthy whole grains that you can choose from like oat groats, steel-cut oats, whole wheat berries, barley etc. As far as it being a good replacement for fruit, I don't think it will be. Grain is grain and fruit is fruit; they're just too different, in my opinion.
