Farina usually refers to finely ground, purified 'middlings' produced in the milling of flour from wheat, but can also refer to a fine powder made from potatoes, or to other fine flours made from other grains, roots or even nuts.
Farina from grains consists of essentially small pieces of endosperm, free from bran and germ.
Farina (from wheat) is frequently prepared as a breakfast food, especially in the U.S., and is usually enriched with various vitamins and minerals. It must be cooked in boiling water to be served - also known as Cream of Wheat.
