We very rarely eat grains in this house, and when we do, we eat it in small amounts and only from proper sources and if it is properly prepared.
By proper sources I mean ancient grains that are organic and that have not been modified, hybridized or made into GMO in any way shape or form. Therefore, bread is a once-in-a-while treat in our household. Most often we bake Paleo breads, i.e. no-grain breads using coconut or almond flour. But sometimes we just love an authentic rustic bread loaf. That’s where Einkorn comes in. Einkorn is nature’s original wheat. This wheat, also sometimes called Farro, is the wheat that was used in Biblical times and was originally cultivated 5,000 – 10,000 years ago.
This ancient grain is packed with nutrition. It is a rich source of the beta carotene lutein, a powerful antioxidant. Einkorn has the highest amounts of lutein of any other variety of wheat. Einkorn is also a rich source of tocotrienols and tocopherols, powerful antioxidants and forms of Vitamin E. Compared to modern wheat varieties, einkorn has higher levels of protein, crude fat, phosphorous, and potassium. it also has the lowest gluten content of any wheat available.
