Sometimes called Farro Piccolo, einkorn is the smallest, most ancient and most natural form of wheat. Most people who can't tolerate modern wheat can consume einkorn wheat because the gluten and makup of the grain is more digestible. Einkorn wheat has only 14 chromozomes while modern varieties of hybrid wheat have 42 chromozomes - the result of wheat hybridization over the past 50-60 years.
Einkorn is higher in protein and other vitimins and minerals such as beta-carotene, Vitamin A, riboflavin and lutein among others. Einkorn is also a hulled wheat, where each grain is encased in a shell/hull which protects the wheat from chemicals and pests.
Einkorn can be used in cereals, breads, side dishes and other recipes.
