Hard Red Winter Wheat is a hard, brownish, mellow high protein wheat used for bread, hard baked goods and added to some flours to increase protein. The futures contract is primarily traded on the CME Group, formerly the Kansas City Board of Trade.

CME announced an August 2013 launch of a short-dated, new crop options contract on Kansas City, or KC hard red winter wheat options.[1]
