How Wheat Works

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Wheat Food Council. All opinions are 100% mine.

I found this very interesting. Their is a web site out there that tells you all about wheat.

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.

I know I eat many things with wheat in it, cereal, bread and crackers just to mention a couple. I knew there was wheat in these items but I didn't know very much about how the wheat went from the fields to my table. Go to How Wheat Works to plant your own wheat fields and to find out a ton of information about the different types of wheat, where it's grown, how long it takes to grown and much much more. Each of the program’s four phases – growth, harvest, milling/baking and the grocer’s aisle - takes just a few minutes to complete, while the program spans the course of four days.

Activity suggestions at the end of each phase allow participants to 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.” I have only completed phase 1 but I'm really looking forward to the up coming phases and the recipes.

If you have kid's I'm sure they would enjoy learning and having fun too. Check out http://www.wheatfoods.org/

When you sign up and participate 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 our members at ADM and ConAgra, two of the world’s largest millers.

How Wheat Works is sponsored by Wheat Foods Council. At the Wheat Foods Council They 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. I totally agree with this. I sure have learned about wheat with this program.
