Whole Foods

Whole foods are those that are unprocessed and unrefined, or processed and refined as little as possible before being consumed. As such, whole foods do not contain added ingredients – such as sugar, salt, or fat.

Whole foods are not necessarily organic, nor are organic foods necessarily whole, although they do share a number of traits, such as an avoidance of chemically-assisted agricultural techniques.

Because of the lack of basic processing, most whole foods have a very short shelf life.

Examples of whole foods include unrefined grains; fruits and vegetables; unprocessed meat, poultry, and fish; and non-homogenized milk.
