The Whole Grain Calculator is a Web-based tool developed to help State agencies identify products that meet WIC minimum specification requirements for whole grain cereal, whole wheat or whole grain bread. The calculator should be used to determine one product whole grain eligibility status at a time. You will need information from the product’s Nutrition Facts Label, Ingredient Panel, and package labeling to answer the calculator questions.
To use the calculator, answer all questions as instructed and submit answers by selecting the “calculate” button at the bottom of the page. The calculator will provide you with instantaneous results. If a product does not meet eligibility requirements for a whole grain product, a brief explanation for the denial will be provided.
If you are having difficulties with the calculator please visit the Whole Grain Calculator Frequently Asked Questions page and/or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
