The Taiwanese spent almost $500 million to buy US wheat this year and I asked Blaine Jacobson, executive director of the Idaho Wheat Commission what they did with it. “Taiwan uses wheat from Idaho for several purposes. The number one use is noodles. They will use both hard and soft wheat for new rules depending on the type of noodle they are making. They also use wheat for steamed breads. It’s a bread that starts out similar to the way we make our dough but they don’t bake it they steam it. Their steamed breads frequently have items on the inside, he little bit like dim sum when you go to Chinatown but not the wet, gluten type of pot stickers, it is more like a biscuit. And then they do a lot of doughnuts.
