The AACC International (AACCI) Scientific Advisory Panel and AACCI leaders have identified "Unifying the Grain Health Benefits Message" as one of five scientific opportunity areas. To this end, a two-day thought-leader meeting was held in January 2013 (24). One of the proposed action steps from this meeting was to develop a review of the benefits of grains. This paper is the first in a series of papers that will be published in Cereal Foods World to provide unified grain health messages as part of this scientific initiative.
