Wheat is a type of grain that is commonly refined to make flour, and is therefore a leading major crop and provides much of the world's food supply, especially when made into bread or pasta.

Wheat is a member of the grasses (Gramineae), which also include rice, corn, sorghum, millet, barley and sugarcane. In addition to food uses, it can be used in fermenting various types of alcohols, feeding animals, and producing biofuels.
