Crushed wheat is a whole grain product used in baking made from grinding or chopping wheat berries into varying particle sizes. Even fine ground crushed wheat is substantially larger than flour particles, and has the germ and hull of the wheat kernel, unlike white flour. The distinctively nutty food is versatile, low in calories and loaded with nutrients. It is a primary source of protein and also contains appreciable amounts of Minerals and Vitamins – especially the B Vitamins. Crushed wheat is best used in whole wheat bread recipes. It can be used as a cereal, or in casseroles, salads and stuffing, as well as savoury preparations like upma or namkeen dalia.
