Wheat

Organic wheat grain is one of the most versatile grains and in many cultures and has been a staple in diets for centuries. The outer bran covering contains three major B vitamins, trace minerals and dietary fibre. The endosperm, however, takes up most of the room and contains protein, carbohydrates, iron, riboflavin and thiamine. The germ (or wheat plant embryo) also contains a small portion of B vitamins and trace minerals as well.

 

3 Facts About Wheat

1. A recent Stanford University study suggests that the nutritional differences between conventional and organic foods are negligible. Deeper root systems also allow the plants to draw more minerals from the soil, and organic farmers tend to plant older or native varieties, which are frequently more nutritious.

2. Organic wheat serves as a healthy alternative to modern wheat because it has fewer carbohydrates and higher protein.

3. Wheat Grain has been produced since 9000 B.C. and possibly before. Suitable to be cooked and eaten whole. Use 3 cups of hot water to every cup of wheat kernels
