Soft Red Winter (SRW) Wheat grown on our farm in Grundy county, Illinois. The wheat has never left the farm. It was grown, harvested, cleaned and stored here. It's non-GMO and certified organic. It's been double cleaned here on the farm with an air screen and gravity table cleaner. The seeds haven't been treated or processed (other than mechanical cleaning) and will still sprout.
This variety of wheat is best for pastries, biscuits, bread sticks, pancakes, waffles, pizza crust etc. It has the nutty flavor of whole wheat but not the bitter taste associated with some soft red varieties. Though soft red is not known as bread wheat, some people think this wheat works great for bread.
Just like any whole grains, wheat berries are excellent providers
of dietary fiber. The nutrients are left untouched since they are not processed
and provide us with folic acid, protein, B-complex vitamins and vitamin E. The
wheat grass acts as a cleanser and is rich in Vitamins A, B, C and E along with
other minerals. It is supposed to have anti-aging capabilities. The grass is
rich in chlorophyll (obviously) and hence works directly on the liver and
Among the nutrients present in whole wheat are high levels of protein, fiber, iron, B vitamins, thiamin, niacin, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc. Studies have shown that the insoluble fiber in wheat bran may help fight colon cancer and at very least, it is beneficial for the digestion.
Wheat contains high levels of gluten, so it should not be consumed in any form by gluten intolerant individuals.
