There are SOOO many lists which empahtically state that you should store 100 to 300 pounds of wheat per person per year. Is this a realistic goal for YOU?
Do you plan to get a grain grinder? Do you even bake bread? And how much bread do you and your family eat?
Both the American and Canadian Government Nutritional Guidelines recommend 6 to 11 servings of grains, cereals, rice or pasta per day, with preferably at least half of that in the form of WHOLE grains.
The following, when consumed in a form including the bran, germ and endosperm, are examples of generally accepted whole grain foods and flours. (Whole Grains Council)
Corn, including whole cornmeal and popcorn
Oats, including oatmeal
Rice, both brown rice and white rice
Sorghum (also called milo)
Wheat, including varieties such as spelt, emmer, farro, einkorn, Kamut®, durum and forms such as bulgur, cracked wheat and wheatberries
Thus, unless you already grind wheat, bake bread, and eat a lot of it, there is no need to store all that wheat and/or flour. Healthy and delicious dishes can be made with barley, oats, rice, quinoa and other grains (as well as a wide variety of pastas) without the use of an oven, which may not be available in the event of a power outage.
As in all the food you store, consider and calculate the amount you and your family normally eat. If you don't normally eat it now, there is no reason to store it. Before you go to the expense of storing ANY food, make sure it is one that you would eat under normal circumstances.
