Einkorn wheat dates back thousands of years. It’s the only strain of wheat in existence that has not been modified. All other types of wheat are the result of hybridization — some natural and some not so natural. This includes Emmer, Kamut, Spelt and Duram.
The past 100 years has introduced the most changes in wheat due to modern plant breeding. This has resulted in strains of wheat that have a higher yield which is beautiful for revenue. But it has also resulted in increased chromosomes and much stronger gluten.
Ever wonder why so many people have issues with gluten now? Wonder if this could be related…
Einkorn wheat has a natural, undisturbed genetic code…It is much more compatible with the human body and easier to digest.
Einkorn wheat has a natural, undisturbed genetic code along with low gluten levels. It is much more compatible with the human body, and it’s easier to digest which makes nutrients more beneficial. Einkorn contains higher levels of protein, fatty acids, phosphorous, potassium, B6 and beta-carotene than modern wheat. Einkorn has survived as a nearly extinct grain, thus avoiding the attention of modern plant breeders.
Einkorn doesn’t just have less gluten, but a different kind of gluten compared to modern wheat. Einkorn doesn’t contain the D Genome, only the A genome. Einkorn also has just two sets of chromosomes (7 per set) while some modern wheat has six sets. Einkorn is the purest type of wheat with low gluten content and increased nutrients making it a truly healthy food.
