What is a Wheat Berry?
A wheat berry is one of the kernels from the head of a wheat plant. Wheat berries can be used for many purposes throughout the plant's life. You can sprout wheat berries for salads and sprouted flour, grow wheatgrass for juicing and fodder, as well as use the wheat berries to make fresh flour or cooked wheat berries for breakfast cereals, salads, wheat berry chili, and soups. A wheat berry consists of three main parts: the germ, the bran, and the endosperm. The bran is full of fiber, antioxidants, B vitamins and minerals, while the endosperm contains carbohydrates, proteins and B vitamins, and the germ is made up of proteins, vitamins B and E, magnesium and other essential fats. It is also important to note that because a wheat berry comes from wheat it does contain gluten.
