Profile America — Friday, August 1st. If you shop the cereal aisle in your supermarket, you'll see dozens of brands on display, from the sugary and candy-like to high-fiber organic products. One of them has been available for well over 100 years. It was on this date in 1893 that a Denver restaurant owner, Henry Perky, received a patent for the creation shredded wheat. By 1901, he had set up an ultra-modern plant at Niagara Falls, called "the Palace of Light," to make shredded wheat, and the falls became the familiar logo of the cereal, which continues as a Nabisco product. In the U.S. today, there are 217 breakfast cereal manufacturing establishments, which combined gross over $22 billion in annual sales.
