Wheat berries are whole, unprocessed wheat kernels in their most natural state. One serving (1/4 cup dry, approximately 1/2 cup cooked) contains 6 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein and 8% of your daily value for iron! Wheat berries are extremely nutritious, very filling, low in calories and their delicious nutty flavor and chewy texture makes it popular for the whole family!
