From wheat to bread

From wheat to bread

This is wheat that has been carefully grown in a field.

It is being harvested in order to be milled into flour, which can be used to make bread.

The harvested wheat grains are stored in good safe conditions, until they are needed for use.

The harvested wheat is then sent to the mill.

Here the wheat grains are milled into different types of flour.

Much of the flour is then used by bakeries throughout the UK to make bread, biscuits and cakes – as well as many other types of products.

The final bread is then sold in shops and supermarkets, where flour can also be bought for baking at home.
