How Wheat Works



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

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. The site is very easy to navigate and use. People of all ages can virtually grow, harvest and mill their own kernels to create their desired wheat food.

I picked to grow soft wheat, after I signed up and picked what wheat I wanted to grow, I planted it (screen shot on left of me planting my soft wheat) and will get an email reminder in 24 hrs that it is time for me to harvest it. The program walks you through four phases – growth, harvest, milling/baking and the grocer’s aisle - each phase takes just a few minutes to complete, while the program spans the course of four days (with email reminders (which I really like). Also at the end of each phase, participants can 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.”

Here is a screenshot (below) after completing my Soft Wheat Planting!



Wheat Foods Council we 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.

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. So what are you waiting for ? So be sure to sign up at HowWheatWorks.com and go through all the phases. Visit How Wheat Works today and get started !!
