Wheat – the biblical and evangelical food

The most widely wheat is Triticum sativum original from Afghanistan and Asia Minor, vaguely from the territories between the Tigris and the Euphrates’, place that has been identified as an earthly paradise.

Wheat is considered to be the biblical and evangelical food. There are many species of Triticum sativum and Triticum vulgare or between those with a high proportion of wheat starch and gluten and therefore a lower protein content (12-44%), Triticum turgidum which can be easily found in warm and dry regions, which is growing especially in Mediterranean regions and in the Black Sea, and Triticum durum, durum wheat that is, with higher content of gluten (15%).

Spelt or Triticum spelta is grown only in poor regions and it is used for forage and the seeds are consumed as food for birds.
