The true history of grain, wheat, and gluten.

Find the squirrel enjoying the grass.

Almost 700 million tons of wheat are cultivated worldwide. It's the second most-produced grain after maize. Considered a staple food for humans, it's in actually everything, not just in our food. From shampoos to glues, really... you can't imagine, it's EVERYWHERE. 

This video shows the difference between modern wheat and the ancient wheat. Something else I want to point out is about grain and seeds. Every grain is a seed. Beans are seeds, but it's a legume. Wheat is a seed, but its a grass. Also rice, maize (corn), barley, millet, cane, oat, bamboo, rye are grasses - this family is big as my mom's family.

Here Dr. Peter Osborne and Dr. John Symes talk about grains, and gluten. They explain how wheat evolve by time, since A.D. years. Known as einkorn wheat, when it had 7% of gluten in each grain. FYI modern wheat has 55%.
