Purchase options Einkorn, ancient grain and dark Rye (550g) -

This is the grandmother of all cultivated wheat. First grown over 10,000 years ago, Einkorn is considered a more nutritious and easily digested cereal. The crumb texture is similar to a rye, with a distinct flavour of almonds.

Nutritional Benefits of Einkorn Wheat:
  1.  Einkorn has a different kind of gluten than modern wheat. It does not contain the D genome, only the A genome.  The D genome is the gluten known to cause so many to suffer gluten sensitivity.  As a result, even though einkorn does have gluten, it is much easier to digest and can be tolerated well by most people with gluten sensitivity.
  2. Einkorn has 3 to 4 times more beta-carotene than modern wheat.  Because of this, it boosts immunity and prevents cancer and heart disease.
  3. Einkorn is high in the antioxidant lutein. Three to four times higher than modern wheat.  Lutein has many health benefits (prevents macular degeneration and cataracts to name a couple) and it is what gives einkorn flour the pretty yellow color.
  4. Einkorn is higher in protein, vitamin B6, vitamin A, thiamin, phosphorus, potassium and riboflavin than modern wheat.
