    EGG WHITES are whole foods.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because egg whites are not considered whole foods. Whole foods are foods that are minimally processed and contain all the essential nutrients. Egg whites are a part of a whole food, which is the whole egg. The whole egg contains both the egg white and the yolk, which provides a more complete nutritional profile compared to just consuming the egg whites alone. Therefore, egg whites cannot be classified as whole foods.

    Frozen organic STRAWBERRIES are whole foods.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Frozen organic strawberries are considered whole foods because they are minimally processed and retain their natural state. Whole foods are foods that are in their original form or have undergone minimal processing, such as freezing. In this case, the strawberries are frozen without any additives or preservatives, making them a true representation of the fruit in its natural state.

    STEEL CUT OATS are whole foods.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Steel cut oats are considered whole foods because they are minimally processed and retain all parts of the oat grain, including the bran, germ, and endosperm. Unlike instant or rolled oats, which are more processed and have the bran and germ removed, steel cut oats provide more fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They are a nutritious and wholesome option for a healthy diet.

    "Sugar in the Raw" is a whole food form of sugar because it is brown, indicating it has gone through less processing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given answer is that the statement is incorrect. "Sugar in the Raw" is not a whole food form of sugar because its brown color does not necessarily indicate that it has undergone less processing. In fact, "Sugar in the Raw" is still refined sugar, but with some molasses added back to give it a slightly darker color. Therefore, it is not a whole food form of sugar.
