Wheat, Hard Red
(Wheat, Hard Red)  Even though wheat is mentioned in ancient writings, it is not the same as the commercial wheat we have today.  Our present day wheat is a variety of hybrid wheat grains which were developed from about 1920.  From what we have learned, this hybrid wheat is more allergenic than the traditional "wheat".  A 100 gram (dry) portion of wheat contains 1.9 grams of fat (17 calories), 72.7 grams of complex carbohydrate (291 calories), and 12.3 grams of protein (49 calories).  (See Kamut for a detailed comparison of nutritional values between our modern day wheat and Kamut.)

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
