What is Einkorn? Is it Wheat?


If you’ve been to one of my workshops lately then you would have been lucky enough to try my yummy einkorn bread. But do you know what einkorn is?einkorn

The Einkorn grain has been untouched by hybridization and has retained its primitive genetic code that contains only 14 chromosomes — a huge difference from the 42 chromosomes contained in modern hybridized wheat. This superior ancient grain also contains less gluten than modern whole wheat and is more abundant in many vitamins and minerals. The excellent nutrition and wellness benefits of einkorn flour make it a must-have for your healthy lifestyle.

The einkorn Young Living use to make their Gary’s True Grit® products is grown by artisan farmers who use traditional methods. Like all our einkorn products, Gary’s True Grit® Einkorn Flour is free from artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives.
• No preservatives
• No artificial flavors or colors
