Today I would like to talk about wheat. Wheat contains mostly starch. There are some proteins, sugar, fat, crude cellulose, and fatty oil. It also contains little lecithin, allantoin, arginine, amylase, maltase, and trace of vitamin B.
Wheat, according to Chinese Medicine, is sweet in taste and cool in nature. It will go to Heart, Spleen, and Kidney channels.
Wheat can nourish the Heart, tonify the Kidney, remove the pathogenic heat and relieve thirst. It is used to help with hysteria, dysphoria, diabetes, diarrhea, dysentery, carbuncle, bleeding due to injury, and scald.
Wheat can be definitely cooked as decoction or even wheaten food. It can also be roasted and grounded into powder to help with carbuncle and swelling, injuries, and scald when used externally. Wheat noodles should be avoided when a person who has damp-heat symptoms.
Side note: Light wheat can be used to help with excessive sweating due to debility.
