Wheat is an excellent food staple, and now with a 25-year shelf life! An excellent addition to your emergency food stores, you can use Hard Red Spring Wheat berries on their own as a breakfast similar to cereal, or you can grind them to produce a nice and familiar flour. This can be quite important to maintain a healthy level of dietary fiber – something you certainly wouldn’t want to be lacking in an emergency!
Hard Red Wheat is a source of high dietary fiber, and rich in betaine. It’s also an excellent source of iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, thiamin, niacin, vitamin B-6 and folate. Our wheat berries are high protein dark northern wheat kernels with a rich, nutty flavor. Grind into fresh whole wheat flour on your home mill, or enjoy in grain bowls, soups and stews.
Hard Red Spring traditionally used in baked goods such as hearth breads, bagels, and croissants. Many bakers will blend a mix of hard wheat and softer flours for the extra protein and gluten content it imparts to the bread. Hard Red Wheat has a reddish colored husk and produces slightly darker flour than white wheat. You can also use ground Hard Red Spring Wheat flour as a non-sweet thickening agent for soups, stews, and other foods. It is also perfect for baking with. This makes wheat berries a perfect pair for freeze-dried food supplies such as those made by Legacy Premium Foods; with a 25-year shelf life all-around, you’ll always have a plan for an emergency (or even just a rainy day)!

While your first thought may be to grind wheat berries into flour, you can also use the whole berries as a breakfast cereal. Simply soak the wheat overnight and rinse in the morning. Add 3 parts water to 1 part wheat, and bring to a boil. Simmer for 60 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside to cool or serve immediately. Add toppings the same as you would with oatmeal!
