Farina (25 lb. bag) (Similar to Cream of Wheat)(Made From Semolina)

  • Farina is made from the germ and endosperm of the grain, which is milled to a fine granular consistency and then sifted. Because the bran and most of the germ are removed, this cereal is sometimes enriched with Vitamin B and iron. Farina, by itself, is most often served as a breakfast cereal, but can also be cooked like polenta. Farina can also be used to make farofa.Farina can also be found on the bottom of some English muffins as it is used to prevent them from sticking to the baking surfaces during the baking process.When enriched, it is one of the single best sources of dietary iron available, especially for vegetarian diets, with most brands offering as much as 50% of the recommended daily value in a single 120-calorie serving.Common additives to it for cereal include cinnamon, butter, sugar or brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, grated chocolate, jelly/jam/preserves, dried or fresh fruit and salt. These can help add to an otherwise bland taste.
