  1. 嚴選高纖全穀類

嚴選高纖全穀類 五穀類食物是腦活動的主要能量來源,經體內被消化及分解後轉成葡萄糖, 即成為腦的重要能源及動力。全穀類指並未經過精製的穀麥類,含豐富纖維 素,亦有助腦部供應穩定糖分。 食物: 全麥麵包、全麥麵、糙米米粉、燕麥、Muesli, granola.

Choose whole grains

Grains are the main source of energy for our brains as our bodies will convert the starch present in grains into sugar, and supply to our brain cells. Whole grains are referred to unrefined grains as they have more fibre, which help to steadily release sugar to brain cells and stabilise the energy released.

Food choices: Whole wheat bread, whole wheat noodles, brown rice noodles, oat, muesli and granola.
