Einkorn is known as the most ancient and pure grain known to man. With a smaller berry size and darker appearance, this ancient wheat is beginning to make a comeback in our modern world.
Einkorn is a very healthy grain. It is higher levels of protein, essential fatty acids, Vitamin B-12, potassium, and lutein.
Modern wheat that we are used to eating today is made of 42 chromosomes. This is due to the cross breeding of the wheat. Because of this the gluten, which is made of two different proteins called glutenin and gliadin are altered, making it hard to digest. Over time modern wheat has also been crossed with goat grasses. One of these grasses contains the D genome of gluten which seems to cause a lot of intolerance in people. The proteins for undigested gliadin make there way into our gut which builds up toxicity. The toxicity leads to inflammation and inflammation leads to many different diseases.
