Cream of Wheat is a porridge-type breakfast food invented in 1893 by wheat millers in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The cereal is currently manufactured and sold by BG Foods. Until 2007, it was the Nabisco brand made by Kraft Foods. It is similar in texture to grits, but made with farina (ground wheat) instead of ground corn. The product made its debut at the 1893 Worlds Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois. In addition to its wheat-based products, the rice-based Cream of Rice is also produced as part of the product line, and is often a recommended early food for infants and toddlers and for people who cant have wheat or gluten. Cream of Wheat is made by boiling water, then pouring in the farina while stirring. As its stirred, the farina starts to thicken, creating a mixture that thickens depending on the ratio of liquid to farina. Some choose to use milk instead of or in addition to water in order to give the food a creamier taste. Currently there are three available original mixes 10-minute, 2 -minute, and 1-minute. Cream of Wheat is also sold in single-serving instant packets. These are prepared by mixing with hot water and allowing to set in a bowl (about two minutes). It is common to customize the hot cereal with the addition of sugar, fruit, or nuts. As a result, several flavors are sold of the instant variety Original, Apples N Cinnamon, Maple Brown Sugar, Strawberries N Cream, and Cinnamon Swirl.
