A Wheat Farm to Fork Experience

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

When my husband was diagnosed of having high blood pressure last year, he shifted to healthy diet. He eats more vegetables, eats food without trans fat and shifted from white bread to wheat bread. Wheat, according to his doctor contains fiber, antioxidants such as Vitamin E and selenium, iron, magnesium, zinc and B vitamins. Wheat, in its natural unrefined state, features a host of important nutrients. Therefore, to receive benefit from wheat it is important to choose wheat products made from whole wheat flour rather than those that are refined and stripped of their natural goodness.
Wheat, like any other food, takes an interesting journey before it becomes delicious muffins, bread, pies, tortilla or pasta dish. If you want to experience how wheat on our plate comes to be, visit How Wheat Works, an online multimedia program created by Wheat Foods Council. It is a four-phase interactive program for all ages filled with factual information wherein you can grow, harvest, mill and bake your desired wheat food.

Eating wheat is very beneficial though the benefit of wheat depend entirely on the form in which you eat it. On How Wheat works, you can learn how to prepare different wheat-based recipes if you extend your learning experience after each phase. And by completing the program, you will be able to give wheat to those in need. 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.

Wheat Foods Council is extending this exciting farm to fork experience to us especially to our children. This will teach them how this most important cereal crop in the world and most consumed grain in America, is an important part of a healthy diet. By supporting this program, we’ll not just gain wheat knowledge but help other families as well.
