Einkorn, also known as Triticum monococcum, is an ancient grain that has been cultivated by humans for over 10,000 years. It is believed to be one of the earliest forms of wheat, and was a staple food in many ancient civilizations, including those of the Bronze Age.
Compared to modern wheat varieties, einkorn has a much simpler genetic structure, with only two sets of chromosomes instead of the six found in modern wheat. This gives it a number of unique characteristics, including a nutty and slightly sweet flavor, a high protein content, and a low gluten content.
Einkorn is also high in nutrients such as beta-carotene, lutein, and tocotrienols, which are antioxidants that can help protect the body against inflammation and oxidative stress. Additionally, einkorn contains a type of carbohydrate known as amylopectin A, which has a lower glycemic index than the amylopectin found in modern wheat. This means that einkorn is less likely to cause spikes in blood sugar levels.
Today, einkorn is still cultivated in some parts of the world, including here in Canada. It is used to make a variety of products, including flour, pasta, and bread. While einkorn is not as widely available as other types of wheat, it has gained popularity in recent years among those looking for healthier and more nutritious alternatives to modern wheat

Came packaged solidly in a big box (I bought 20 kg). Ground some up for some buns the other night and the taste was amazing! Great product.
I was worried as to how my order would be packaged and if I would receive a broken package. My worry was for nothing as my big bag of einkorn grains was packed securely, nothing was leaked and when I opened the package, I received a wonderful bouquet of fresh grain. Love it. Thank you, StorehouseFoods for providing such fresh goodness.
