The Contra Costa Times reports that “sales of whole-grain bread and baked goods in the past year or so have risen 18.3 percent to about $1.1 billion, according to the Whole Grains Council, an advocacy group based in Manhattan, Kansas. Fresh bread, on the other hand, declined in unit sales by 7 percent to about 3.2 billion units from 2003 to 2005.”
