The food vale of Shredded Wheat. The whole wheat is without doubt the most perfect food given to man. It contains all the elements necessary to build and nourish the human body. But the whole wheat must be prepared in a digestible form. Shredded Wheat is made by a process which insures the digestibility of the whole wheat. It is the whole wheat cleaned, steam-cooked, drawn into porus filmy shreds, formed into biscuits and baked in large coal ovens. In making Shredded Wheat Biscuit the bran or outer coat of the wheat berry is retained. This performs the useful function of stimulating peristalsis (bowel exercise), thereby keeping the intestinal tract clean and healthy. The crispness of the shreds of baked whole wheat induces thorough mastication, thus promoting a thorough mixing with saliva which prepares the food for digestion. This thorough mastication also develops sound teeth and healthy gums. Home of Shredded Wheat.
