In the sentence below, I don't understand how the clause after "over and above.." fit into the sentence.

people who eat diets high in processed foods are taking an equivalent of 11, 1-g capsules of linoleic acid daily over and above intake from wholesome foods

Is it basically saying, if you eat a lot of processed foods, it's like taking 11 capsules of linoleic acid (1g per capsule) and this is a lot more than the intake from whole some foods?

and

what would be a synonym for "wholesome foods"? What does wholesome mean in this case?

According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, wholesome is:

  1. promoting health or well-being of mind or spirit
  2. promoting health of body
  3. sound in body, mind, or morals, having the simple health or vigor of normal domesticity
  4. based on well-grounded fear, safe

And as for the first question, it seems about right.
