Discover How Wheat Works
"How Wheat Works" is a free, online virtual experience built for people of all ages. At www.howwheatworks.com you can virtually grow, harvest and mill your own wheat to create a wheat food product. The interactive, multi-media program will teach you where your grain based food comes from and why it's an important part of a healthy diet.
This exciting program is filled with factual information, vibrant video and 3-D animation and fun, educational activities. Each of the program's four phases -- growth, harvest, milling/baking and the grocer's aisle -- takes just a few minutes to complete, while the program spans the course of four days.
Interactive opportunities include the selection of the type of wheat to be grown and the wheat flour to be milled, based on your preferred end-use food product.
Following the completion of the four phases, a quiz tests your wheat knowledge at which time the Wheat Foods Council, Con Agra and ADM will donate two pounds of flour to Operation Home Front -- a non-profit organization that provides emergency and morale assistance for U.S. troops and their families.
So what are you waiting for? Log onto www.howwheatworks.com today to discover how wheat is grown and feel good about helping U.S. troops and their families!
