The wholesome nutrition of
wheat has long been recognized
in the wheat flour products we
enjoy each day. That same good
ness remains complete and intact
when the wheat kernel is cooked
as a grain and served as cereal,
or in side dishes, main dishes,
salads, soups and desserts.
Wheat kernels or berries are ex
ceptionally easy to prepare since
they do not become sticky or
gummy. Their flavor is rich and
nut-like and with a high fiber
content, they are very satisfying.
When comparisons are made
between different grains, wheat
maintains a high status. Wheat is
low in fat, rich in siow-buming
carbohydrates, vegetable protein,
essential B-vitamins, and trace
minerals. All play a vital role in
digestion, an even energy supply,
and utilization of fats, carbohy
drates and other nutrients in the
body’s system.
. Let’s take a look at some of
the types of wheat products.
Wheat berry is the whole ker
nel of wheat, unpolished and not
heat treated. The berries or ker

or main dishes, cracked for cere

ground for whole wheat flour.

Far Infrared Rays (FIR) Health Builder
Within the magnetic spectrum, while some rays, such as
light, can be seen by the unaided human eye, most are
totally invisible to us. Far Infrared Rays (FIR) are well
beyond the ability of the naked eye to see FIR is
capable of penetrating deep into the human body It can
gently and delightfully elevate the body's temperature
When it does so, it helps to expand capillaries which
stimulates blood circulation. This increases the body's
energy reserve, and accelerates the metabolic exchange
between blood and body tissue. That's not all' FIR can
actually increase the body tissue's regenerative ability. It
also reduces abnormalities in nervous system and helps
the autonomous system function properly
