Netflix Review: “What’s with Wheat”




I find food trends fascinating, and I would be interested in getting a show of hands as to how many people have or have tried – heck even considered giving up wheat or gluten this year.

It’s everywhere. I mean, you can’t walk around the grocery store without seeing gluten free labels slapped on almost anything. After all, it’s what consumers these days are looking for. Wheat has gotten a bad rap, and for that reason many people want to give it up.

What I enjoyed about this documentary is that it digs deeper to answer some of the questions as to WHY anyone should give up wheat, beyond just the general sense of it being ‘better for your health’. It starts at the very root of it – literally.

So does wheat get the bad rap it deserves? Watch the documentary and you decide. As the movie expresses, since the way wheat has been manufactured has changed so profoundly, allergies and sensitivities related to wheat seem to have sky-rocketed.



Should you take wheat out of your diet? Without knowing you well enough, I can’t answer that. Perhaps watching this film could help you figure it out?

What I do know for sure is that education is key – and what we need to do as consumers is be educating ourselves on what we are putting in our bodies. For instance, many of us have no idea how wheat is grown, or how many different products wheat can be found in.

At only just over an hour long, this documentary will provide you with a little extra knowledge that may help you improve your health so I say: give it a watch – Standing Strong Wellness approved.
