“Do you know that wheat is actually an ancient cereal that has always been cultivated as food? Its origin comes from the Western Asia area, in the so-called “fertile crescent”, corresponding to the ancient Mesopotamia, which benefited from the presence of the Tigris and Euphrates (from the civilizations of the Sumerians, Assyrians and Babylonians; spread to Syria and Palestine, then to the great Egyptian, Greek and Roman civilizations).”
