Emergency Preparedness – Unimix and Atmit.
The LDS Church’s food relief effort in African and East Asian nations had an abysmal start when wheat was identified as “too high test” a food to save near starving souls in metabolic distress. “Malnourished little children and the elderly cannot digest whole grains and foods made with course flour. To recover, their stressed and tender digestive systems require frequent feedings of easily digestible food in small amounts,” said a Welfare Services report.

Unimix and Atmit, products made of mild grain flours (oats, corn, milo, etc), powdered milk, sweetener, cooking oil, salt, and boiling water, provide the “nourishing porridge” to save the most vulnerable. Church-member volunteers are saving millions of lives with Atmit they produce at Welfare Square.
“All grains are ordained for the use of man and beast to be the staff of life.” Remember special needs family members and store foods that are useful and digestible. Anybody can eat mild grains, whether in soupy porridge or mush. If it’s too soupy, reduce the water. Gerber cereals feed infants, but not with wheat. Remember also that it’s easy to cook grains in, and serve them from a wide mouth Thermos bottle.
