Wheat berries can be found in the bulk section of your supermarket or bulk store.  They are the entire edible part of the wheat kernel and considered “whole wheat” because they include the bran, endosperm and germ.  They have a naturally chewy texture and are fibre rich.  They do not require any soaking, however soaking overnight will reduce required cooking time.
