In nutrition sampling tests, Einkorn wheat has been found to be a more nutritious grain than many others available today. It contains higher levels of protein, essential fatty acids, phosphorous, potassium, pyridoxine (B6), lutein and beta-carotene (lutein).
The wheat we eat today isn’t what humans ate thousands of years ago. Through generations of hybridization, the standard wheat that’s on today’s store shelves has changed significantly, potentially leading to more and more sensitivity to wheat and gluten. Einkorn is humanity’s oldest wheat, grown by our ancestors, and it retains simpler, more nutritious structures that benefit our bodies.
