Cream of Wheat is a porridge-type breakfast food first manufactured in the United States in 1893 by wheat millers in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The cereal is currently manufactured and sold by B&G Foods. Until 2007, it was the Nabisco brand made by Kraft Foods. It is similar in texture to grits, but made with ground wheat kernels instead of ground corn. The product made its debut at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois.
In addition to its wheat-based products, the rice-based Cream of Rice is also produced as part of the product line, and is often a recommended early food for infants and toddlers and for people who can't have wheat or gluten.
