Wheat, Hard Red – A Vegan Pantry Ingredient from Vegan Venue
Wheat, Hard Red is a vegan pantry ingredient that we grind into flour for baking when a denser bread is acceptable or desired. See more about it below.
About Hard Red Wheat:
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). Most flour sold in the supermarket seem to be made from this wheat. We could not find detailed nutritional information for hard red wheat. (See Kamut for a detailed comparison of nutritional values between our modern day wheat and Kamut.)
Some background information:
Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal. After that they then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection. This way we can experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy. It’s a great way to live and our foods provide almost all of our vitamins.
