Einkorn is a variety of wheat. It’s known as the oldest variety of wheat, or the first wheat, making it an ancient grain. The wheat that’s commonly used today isn’t the same as the wheat our ancestors consumed for thousands of years. Modern wheat has been hybridized. This is where einkorn really shines, because it still holds to its original properties and nutritional values. Einkorn has a much higher protein content (30% more than modern wheat) and less starch (15% less than modern wheat), along with a higher concentration of minerals and flavor. Einkorn is NOT a gluten-free grain and should NOT be consumed if you have celiac disease. Einkorn is easier to digest, making it ideal for those with gluten sensitives.
