Getting Grain-ular: Seeding Change for Global Health

Mar 9, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Wheat is a global food staple that has remained unchanged for more than 10,000 years. A new approach to one of the world’s oldest crops has the potential to improve global health. More than 95% of Americans are fiber deficient—getting less than half the daily recommended amount. Grown as part of an international collaboration to address public health endemics, a non-GMO wheat varietal has been cultivated to naturally provide 10x the prebiotic fiber of traditional white flour. Researched and tested, high-amylose wheat can transform the nutrition of foods we love and the future of human health.
