Semolina, a nutritious preparation, consisting of granulated wheat.

In 1780, a patent was granted to Mr. Jacob LEvy, for a method of making Semolina, which hith imported from Poland, where it is called Cracow-Groats. It con-grinding wheat, in an appror which the flour is separated from the middlings: the latter arc then dressed four different times in a mild, and sifted through parchment ves, till they are perfectly cleared from all bran and pollard.

Semolina forms a wholesome and light food for invalids and convalescents, being preferable to sago; as it perfectly dissolves in water, while the foreign drug undergoes only a partial solution ; thus, considerable sums might be saved to the nation, which at present are annually paid for the importation of Sago.
