    Smile made of/from

    Would you say "Flour is made of or from wheat?" And why? Thanks.

    Re: made of/from

    Thanks, my friends.
    Wheat and flour are basically no different from each other, so could I use "made of?"

    Re: made of/from

    Flour is a modified form of the wheat kernel. Thus: from.
