These are whole Red Fife wheat berries. Performs similarly to and can be used in place of modern Hard Red Winter wheat.

Heirloom Red Fife wheat boasts exceptional flavor and baking properties while remaining un-altered by modern genetic modification.

Named after David Fife, the seed came from Scotland in 1842 and is believed to be a relative of Halychanka Wheat, a Ukrainian Heritage wheat.

Red Fife has been resurrected by a number of faithful organic heritage wheat farmers mostly here in Canada. Red Fife seed is being actively preserved and protected as a Heritage/Heirloom variety. Although it is the foundation of many modern hybrid wheat varieties this wheat has itself not undergone the hybridization of modern wheats. It is thought that mass hybridization of modern wheat has changed the protein structure of wheat leading to the increased cases of gluten sensitivity we see today. Red Fife may be more easily digestible and tolerated by those with gluten sensitivities.

The taste of the Red Fife goods are more complex than common Hard Red Wheats and the breads bake up moister, with a cohesive crumb. Especially suited to bread it has a high gluten content that can be used by itself or mixed with low gluten flours (spelt, rye etc) for excellent results.
