Einkorn is an heirloom wheat that was first cultivated about 10,000 years ago and grew wild long before that. It is the first wheat known in history and has never been cross breed or altered. Not only is it more flavorful than modern day wheat, it is more nutritious and easier to digest. It is higher in protein, lutein, riboflavin, vitamin A, and carotene. Although it has gluten, the gluten has a different composition and molecular size than that of modern day wheat. These differences in it’s genetic structure makes it more tolerable and easier to digest. It does not have the same toxic effects that the gluten in modern wheat has. It is wheat in the purest form, the way God intended wheat to be….. healthy, wholesome, unaltered and delicious.
