eat wheat, know wheat

While sitting at a local restaurant we heard someone cancel his previous order, fried chow mein, and make a fresh order for a large burger. Moments later a friend commented about the ingredients of chow mein and burger - and after some talk we concluded that both were made of wheat. Walking back home, I began to count our daily food items that actually consist wheat, and realised that many things we eat including bread, bun, pasta, pizza, cookie, cake, roti, puri, burger, noodles, chow-chow, chow mein, macaroni, etc. are basically made of wheat.

Wheat is the staple diet of human beings. It is the most produced cereal crop of all times succeeding maize and preceding rice. More foods are made with wheat than any other cereal grain. According to FAO, China is the largest producer of wheat followed by India, United States of America, Russia and France. This site contains a lot of information about wheat, resources for enthusiasts, and a fun section for kids as well. And do no forget to check out the Recipe Section - you might be in for some surprises!
