Cream of wheat[edit]

cream of wheat deserves it own page.

Agreed - I'm going to change the redirect. Rasi2290


the difference or (generality/specificity?) between farina and flour must be explained or this page must be merged into flour. --Turanyuksel 18:07, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Removed Al Roker from the "See Also" links.

Hi, I'm a cereal Chemist who works in a flour mill. Farina is no more flour than bran or germ is flour. It is a seperate byproduct of the traditional flour milling process. This page should not be merged into the flour page. -- (talk) 20:07, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Our Gang trivia[edit]

I think the sentence "Allen Hoskins's character in the Our Gang comedies was named "Farina" after the cereal." should be under trivia. Also, I am removing this line, as it doesn't seem to serve any purpose: "how to make farina cheese is cool. I like cheese Farina is a healthy food". Athaler 03:52, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Lack of clarity in the exact definition of Farina...[edit]

In trying to find out exactly what Farina is, I looked it up here in wikipedia and found this entry to be a bit confusing. I find that the first sentence " a bland-tasting meal made from cereal grains, nuts, or starchy roots" may be in conflict with a later statement reading, "Farina is finely ground wheat..." Which one is it? Is Farina a more general term that can apply to any grain, nut or "starchy root," or does it only apply to wheat? --Ma78 (talk) 04:18, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Farina still undefined[edit]

I completely agree with the previous poster. The wikipedia entry for Farina is not very clear. Not surprising considering nobody seems to know what farina really is. I have found three distinct definitions for it on the WEB. First was that it is made from a Farina Grain, Second that it was made from Wheat Grain and third that it was made from grains and other stuff. This very entry uses two of these three definitions, even though they are pretty much exclusive of one another. Maybe the chemist who works at the mill can clarify just what exactly is farina. 03/19/2008 —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:09, 19 March 2008 (UTC)


This article seems to describe an American food or ingredient. Mayhaps much of the confusion is caused by the fact that 'farina' is also an Italian word, simply meaning flour. French 'farine' is equivalent. Both are fairly commonly used in the rest of the world. Max Szabó (talk) 20:55, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
