Our rolled wheat is made using a unique process of carefully controlled moisture and temperature that gelatinizes the starches, making the grain more digestible while retaining nutrients. This process also denatures enzymes that cause rancidity, extending shelf life of the grain. Enjoy rolled wheat with other rolled grains in breakfast porridge or granola. Give soups, stews and casseroles a protein and nutrient boost by adding rolled wheat.
Wheat, the Staff of Life, is the top cereal crop in the world followed by corn and rice. It is the staple grain for at least a third of the world۪s population. Wheat is ubiquitous in the American diet - in breads, pasta, crackers, breakfast cereals, baked goods and pastries. Unfortunately, most of these products are made from refined flour, which is missing the most nutritious parts of the wheat kernel the germ and bran. Enriching refined flour only adds a fraction of the nutrients that have been removed.
Wheat is classified according to planting season (winter or spring), hardness of the kernel (hard or soft) and color of the kernel (red or white). Winter wheat is planted in the fall and harvested in early summer; spring wheat is planted in spring and harvested in late summer.
