How Wheat Works Program

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

Forget Farmville. Get farm-to-fork education that is real. Learn where bread, crackers, cereal, biscuits, and other wheat products come from and the nutritional value from wheat foods.  Use the interactive multimedia program at How Wheat Works which shows you how wheat is grown, harvested, then baked into products we eat that end up in our stores. You choose the type of wheat that goes through this process and watch videos and animation, see photos and read facts.

It takes just a few minutes to go through each phase. Then you get an email to return in 24 hours to go on to the next phase. In the end you have planted a virtual wheat farm and gone through the steps to bring your crop to the store.

For everyone who takes part, the Wheat Foods Council (who runs the program) will donate two pounds of flour, up to 90,000 pounds, to Operation Homefront, a non-profit that helps needy U.S. troops and their families. Both ConAgra and ADM, top US millers, provide the flour.

There’s also a similar site for children aged 9 -12. It’s important for them to understand where wheat products come from too.

  1. Wow, what a fun diversion Connie! I know there’s a lot of talk about wheat lately. It’s confusing. So many tout the benefits of whole wheat while others say it might be bad for you (if you have celiac disease).

    As for myself, I’m a diehard wheatie!
