I appreciate your response
Thanks in Advance,
Cracked wheat is highly nutritious because of its fibre, mineral and vitamin content. It provides calories similar to rice. But since it is higher in fibre, you will realise that eating a little lesser quantity sufficiently fills you.
Choose quantities sufficient for your caloric requirements.Since wheat contains gluten, those who are sensitive to gluten need to avoid it.
