Whole Grain Food Facts

By Joe Wilkes
From the Million Dollar Body Club - Join Today and Workout to Win!

  1. Bushel of WheatHow many one-pound loaves of bread are produced by a bushel of wheat? - A bushel of wheat contains over one million kernels, enough to make 73 loaves of bread. More food is made from wheat than from any other type of grain.

  2. What is barley most commonly used for in the U.S.? - Over half of the U.S. barley supply is used to produce beer. Most of the rest is used to feed livestock. Very little is actually produced as food for human consumption (unless you count beer as food).

  3. MilletWhat are the three oldest cultivated crops? - The three oldest crops known to man are rice, sorghum, and millet. Evidence of cultivation of all of these crops dates back over 8,000 years.

  4. Which is most filling—a doughnut, a croissant, white bread, or oatmeal? - An Australian study found that oatmeal was twice as filling as bread, three times as filling as a doughnut, and five times as filling as a croissant. While it's true that fat is filling, soluble fiber is even better at providing satiety, the feeling of fullness, and is a lot healthier.

  5. Buckwheat GroatsWhat is the eastern European staple kasha made from? - Kasha is made from roasted buckwheat groats. Buckwheat is very popular in eastern Europe, Russia, and other areas where the land is tough to farm. Buckwheat is a very hardy crop that can grow in almost any environment. Buckwheat flour is what is used to make blini, Russia's popular crepe-like pancakes.
