Long Wheat availability

I hope I am not intruding as I don't live in India, but I read about the long wheat diet curing diabetes and was wondering if I could get it in the U.S. and what would be the name of it in the U.S.? Thank you very much.

You can use Wheat Bran in place of Long wheat ; Mix - 50% Bran in Wheat flour 50%,]

I wonder if this will work the same as the long wheat?

Hi anycegal,

You are right. Long Wheat is a separate grain, mixture of wheat bran & wheat flour (50-50 or any combination) is not a substitute for it.

Hello ShooterGeorge,

I am going to try this from today. I will keep you posted on how it goes. Thanks for sharing this with everyone.

Hi suba19us,

You are most welcome.

Can you make chapatti if bran is 50% by weight (same weight as whole wheat flour)? efar52@gmail.com

Not sure if you can get it in USA,try as Emmer Wheat,you may find it.

Thank you, yes I was able to find Emmer wheat.

You can use broken wheat also to cook and eat. Like rice, you can have it also. Broken wheat cannot ear too much like rice. Also it will take less time to cook. Broken wheat is available in almost all supermarkets. regards.

Thank you sivagovind. I wonder if it will have the same results as long wheat?

Correction: please read as "eat" instead of "ear". appologize for the error

Hi anycegal,

First of all no intruders are spared in India; one day she/ he will be sent where she/ he belongs to. You are most welcome as a guest but not as an intruder. Athidi devo bhava (guests are like GOD in India). Lighter comments apart. The name for Long Wheat in English as already suggested by one of the members of this forum. But, for further information on Long Wheat you please search for posts by 'shootergeorge' and other members. I have been eating it for almost 1 year in different forms. Now I am eating it as a kind of Long Wheat + LCHF. And I am keeping sugar levels very much under control with Metasens 500mg daily once. Hope this will help you.

Thank you Swamy. You are so kind.

anycegal: I have started taking 80 gram flax seed in two installments each with a chappati with butter. I also take couple of tablespoon Quaker Oats (skimmed milk) before a meal and take 100 grams of horse gram for fiber. Feel this keeps RBS down. Will know impact when I get my next HbA1C.
