Gluten's Unfortunate Reputation — Is it Really Bad for You?


The Healthy Grains Institute was launched in November of 2012 as a not-for-profit organization with a goal of guiding Canadians in their pursuit of health and weight management. The Institute works to provide the public with science-based information on the benefits of whole grains and is guided by an independent, multi-disciplinary Scientific Advisory Council made up of Dr. Harvey Anderson, Dr. Ravinda Chibbar and Dr. Julie Miller Jones of the University of Toronto, the University of Saskatchewan and St. Catherine University, respectively.
