Wheat is a worldwide cultivated grass from the Fertile Crescent region of the Near East. Wheat grain is a staple food used to make flour, breads, for fermentation to make beer and more. Wheat is planted to a limited extent as a forage crop for livestock, and the straw can be used as fodder for livestock or as a construction material for roofing thatch. These are some of information I read online. We get lots of nutrition from wheat that is good for our diet. The How Wheat Works is an interactive, online multimedia program that delivers a farm-to-fork education on wheat, enabling a better understanding of its nutritional value. Participants of all ages can virtually grow, harvest and mill their own kernels to create their desired wheat food. For each participant, the Council will donate two pounds of flour, up to 90,000 pounds, to Operation Homefront, a non-profit that provides assistance to needy U.S. troops and their families. This donation is made possible by the members at ADM and ConAgra, two of the world’s largest millers. The Wheat Foods Council is a national nonprofit organization formed to help increase awareness of dietary grains as an essential component to a healthy diet. Families everywhere, Nutrition professional, health consumer, cook and more are part of the WFC. The Wheat Foods Council is an industry-wide partnership dedicated to increasing wheat and other grain foods consumption through nutrition information, education, research and promotional programs. Participants will extend their learning experience through preparing wheat-based recipes, exploring wheat grown in their area through our state wheat commission member sites and viewing harvest videos from America’s Heartland. Wheat Foods Council believe that teaching people how a whole or enriched grain food comes to be can shed new light on wheat nutrition, resulting in informed food choices.
