The term wheatberry or wheat berry refers to the entire wheat kernel (except for the hull), comprising the bran, germ, and endosperm. Wheatberries have a tan to reddish brown color and are available as either a hard or soft processed grain. They are often added to salads or baked into bread to add a crunchy texture; as a whole grain, they also provide nutritional benefits since they are an excellent source of dietary fiber.

Wheatberries are the primary ingredient in an Eastern European Christmas porridge called 'kutya'. And guess what, ''Kutya'' in the Hungarian language means 'dog'!
