Beyond the Table

When you hear the word “wheat,” do you automatically think of bread, pasta and other wheat foods? 

Did you know that wheat can be used for things other than food? Wheat and wheat straw have many alternative uses that make wheat a valuable crop. 

Place an X beside the products that contain wheat.

_X__  shampoo
_X__  particle board
_X__  pet and livestock feed
_X__  paper
_X__  laundry detergent
_X__  spaghetti
_X__  glues
_X__  packaging peanuts
_X__  pizza

Did you know all of these products contained wheat in them?

If you placed an X beside all of the products listed you were correct! Even paper and glue contain wheat!
