History

Wheat producers across the country joined together in 1972 to create the Wheat Foods Council as a national non-profit organization to promote the category of wheat-based foods, including baked goods, cereal, crackers, pretzels, pasta, sweet goods and tortillas. Since then, our organization has established itself as a leading source of science-based information on wheat and wheat foods nutrition. Backed by our 43-year history, we are proud to share our expertise about “all things wheat foods” with health and nutrition practitioners, educators, the media, consumers, and anyone who, like us, loves the many wonderful foods made from wheat.
