The term whole grain can be wicked misleading. I'm not sure that the FDA has defined what whole grains are where advertising is concerned.
You have to look at the ingredients. The whole grain are made with whole wheat flour instead of enriched flour. That is what makes them better. The term whole grain can be misleading because the can have "whole grain" in them but not be made entirely from whole grain. These look to be made entirely from whole grain flour.
Yes, these are made from 100% whole wheat flour. But if you continue reading the ingredients, you'll come across high fructose corn syrup, a negative staple in junk food.
I like fig newtons but I will not buy them anymore because of high frutose corn sweeter in them.
I used to buy the whole grain fig newtons for my daughter...until I decided to cut all high fructose corn syrup from our diet. It's unfortunate, she really liked them.
You try Newman's Own Fig Newmans instead. Much better ingredients.
Barbara's Bakery (distributed from Petaluma, CA) makes a great whole wheat fig bar! Here's the ingredient list... Pineapple juice syrup, organic fig paste, organic whole wheat flour, date paste, rasin juice concentrate, expellar pressed canola oil, baking soda, soy lecithin, sea salt, citric acid. These bars are delicious and very filling.
I just know I like to eat them because they're so tasty!
I picked up a package recently after many many years of only their distant memory. They were crumbly bur delicious! Then I grabbed an original package. They were horribly nasty!
