Hard red wheat berries are the seed of the wheat plant. Hard red wheat has the highest protein content of all the wheat types. The harder the wheat berry the more gluten it contains which makes bread dough be more elastic, rise, and hold its shape. Lower in protein compared to hard white spring wheat berries. With a robust, nutty flavor and reddish-brown color, hard red wheat berries are a nutritious ingredient to add to soups, salad and cereals. They are also commonly ground into a flour and used to make bread and other baked goods.
