2-1/2 minute cook time. Excellent source of iron & calcium. Since 1893. Wholesome Nutrition for Your Family: A hot delicious bowl of Cream of Wheat provides 6 essential vitamins and minerals including iron and calcium. Cream of Wheat is a naturally fat-free and cholesterol-free food that is also low in sodium when prepared with water and without salt. Calcium: Studies have shown that most Americans do not consume enough calcium through their diet, which may increase the risk of osteoporosis later in life. To help build and maintain strong bones and teeth, prepare a bowl of Cream of Wheat with 1-1/4 cup of fat-free milk. Add additional vitamins and minerals to your bowl by stirring in some fresh fruit and your favorite nuts. Iron: Your body needs iron to maintain energy levels and fight infection. But many people still do not get enough iron in their diet. Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency in the United States. Just 1 serving of Cream of Wheat provides 50% of the iron needed to give you the energy to get you through your day!

Stovetop Directions: 1. Bring water and salt to a boil. (Or, if using milk, just bring to a boil.) 2. Gradually add Cream of Wheat, stirring constantly with wire whisk until well blended. 3. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered 2-1/2 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently. Cool slightly. 1 Serving: Water or Milk: 1-1/4 cups; Salt (Optional): 1/8 tsp; Cream of Wheat: 3 tbsp. 2 Servings: Water or Milk: 2 cups; Salt (Optional): 1/4 tsp; Cream of Wheat: 1/3 cup. 4 Servings: Water or Milk: 4 cups; Salt (Optional): 1/2 tsp; Cream of Wheat: 3/4 cup. Microwave Directions: 1 serving. 1. Mix 3 tbsp Cream of Wheat, 3/4 cup water or milk and a dash of salt in 1-quart microwaveable bowl or measuring cup. 2. Microwave on high 1 minute. Stir with wire whisk. Cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir again. Cool slightly. Caution: Bowl will be hot; carefully remove from microwave using pot holders. Note: Microwave ovens vary. Cooking times are approximate. Overheating can cause cereal to boil over.
