Hard white wheat was developed from hard red wheat by eliminating the genes for bran color while preserving the other desirable characteristics of red wheat. Red wheat can have one to three genes that provide the bran with its red cast. White wheat, on the other hand, contains none of these genes. The elimination of these genes results in few phenolic compounds and tannins in the bran which significantly reduces the bitter taste that some people experience from red wheat. The nutritional value and specifications for white wheat are comparable to that of red wheat. With a nutty, earthy flavor and creamy, ivory color, hard white spring wheat berries are a nutritional ingredient to add to soups, salads, bars and cereals. They are also commonly ground into flour to make bread and other baked goods.
