We Love ORGANIC EINKORN wheat!
The original wheat – superior taste and nutrition – however, low yields, somewhat limited availability and the average consumer’s lack of necessary equipment to process the grain tends to restrict widespread consumption. That said, at Blue Bike we stock organic Einkorn and grind our own as needed. You can taste the difference! See what others say about Einkorn here, here and here
Einkorn grains are much smaller than grains of modern forms of wheat
Considering the fact that einkorn is the most genetically primitive and ancient form of cultivated wheat, its very different from the wheat we eat today. What’s more, many people say Einkorn is tastier than modern forms of wheat!
Einkorn wheat can be digested better than most foods. The low content of gluten in Einkorn makes it easier to digest than modern wheat. An improvement in digestion means that nutrients are better absorbed, ensuring that you have no tummy problems after consuming a delicious dish cooked with einkorn flour.
