After years of research, colorized wheat was cultivated in 2002 for the first time by experts in Nanyang city, led by Zhou Zhongjin and his son. The colorized wheat in black, green, brown and other colors is not only edible, but also has health care effects.
It is rich in many kinds of microelements such as iodine, selenium, calcium and zinc, which is why it comes in different colors. Due to the healthcare functions of these microelements, it is also called health care wheat.
It is known that US experts add various microelements into edible flour artificially, while Nanyang's experts cultivate this kind of wheat naturally.
