What is Farina?

Historically, Farina was the first genuine flour before milling stones. Named after the Latin word for meal, flour, or spelt (a type of ancient wheat), Farina is a mild-tasting fine granular meal made from wheat that, when cooked in boiling liquid, is used to make hot breakfast cereal and can also be cooked like polenta. Popularly sold as “Cream of Wheat™,” farina is made from the grain’s endosperm, which is milled to a fine-grained consistency and then sifted. The bran and most of the germ are removed and then enriched with B vitamins and iron.
