And from Is it healthy to eat raw grain soaked in water overnight? seems to confirm they will pretty much make everyone sick unless you have an industrial digestive tract
    Essential they are undigestible raw with the hulls on whether they make you sick or not.
    Thanks for the derail

    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Because I've been busy taking care of my Dad in the hospital the past two days. Bosnic said exactly what I would have, had I been available.

    So does it make you sick or it will make the entire population of human beings sick? Bosnic didn't say

    Growing up on the farm we would eat raw wheat, oats barley with no side effects. Fresh off the stalk it was chewy tender sort of like pasta that was 30 seconds away from el dente. After sitting in the grainery for a while it got very hard

    Mind you, we didn't make a meal of it. In the 60's and 70's I recall 'hippies' soaking and cooking whole wheat berries. I think they even served it at mother earth news eco village restaurants in north carolina.

    Thank you, twa2w. This gives me more to think about (I'm the OP). I didn't know it was possible to eat raw wheat off the stalk. Are there any animals that eat wheat "in the wild"? I know it's not good for cattle.
