Product Info

Einkorn is an ancient grain with a rich history that dates back over 10,000 years. It is considered one of the earliest cultivated grains and played a crucial role in the development of human agriculture. Einkorn originated in the Fertile Crescent region, which encompasses modern-day Iran, Iraq, and Turkey.

This ancient grain possesses several distinctive attributes. Einkorn has a simple genetic makeup, with each kernel containing only two sets of chromosomes, making it a diploid grain. It has a unique hulled structure, with a tough outer husk protecting the grain. Einkorn once de-hulled reveals a small kernel with a beautiful golden colour. Einkorn is a Non-GMO grain meaning it has not been genetically modified. Einkorn’s simple genetic structure contributes to its higher protein content. The presence of fewer chromosomes allows for a higher concentration of protein in each kernel. In addition, einkorn’s nutritional profile comprises essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, including B vitamins and iron.

The attributes of einkorn include a nutty and slightly sweet flavor, making it a delightful ingredient in it’s whole berry form in pilafs, salads and soups where the grain retains its firmness and adds a distinctive touch. Einkorn can be ground into flour and used for baking bread, muffins, pancakes, and other baked goods. Baking bread with einkorn flour is a unique and rewarding experience. Its unique gluten structure may not provide the same rise as modern wheat, but it imparts a pleasant texture and taste. It is favored for its distinct flavor and more water soluble gluten which means it may not rise as much as bread made with all-purpose or bread flour. As a result, the texture may be denser and the crumb tighter. Some bakers find this desirable for certain bread types.

With growing interest in ancient grains, einkorn has tweaked the interest of health-conscious individuals. Its unique genetic composition and characteristics contribute to its nutritional profile and set it apart from other wheat varieties.
