Wheat

Wheat is a cultivated grass that is used as a staple food worldwide. It is used in a variety of products, including flour to make bread and baked goods. Wheat starts out as a very nutritious food source, but the over processing of wheat that takes place in most food products we consume today leads to a nutrient deficient product. The reason is that as the wheat is processed into the foods we eat, 60 percent of the wheat grain is removed, including the essential bran and the germ. However, when wheat is consumed as un-extracted whole wheat, the wheat bran stays intact and provides a good supply of dietary fiber and manganese as well as many essential vitamins and minerals.
