Series: How Stuff Works is about the stuff that powers our modern world. Follow the incredible journey of common goods from the ground to your table, car, closet, medicine cabinet, and places you may have never imagined. Not for just nutrition, wheat is used in many things that you would never expect.

Program: The program highlights wheat's many uses, from fire-resistant doors to plastics. Wheat's polyploidal structure gives the plant a genetic edge, and wheat breeders have worked for more than 8,000 years to develop the perfect variety of the grain.
