These types of foods are to blame for global diabetes and obesity epidemic, and can only be reversed by changing our diets to a more natural, unprocessed way of eating.
Einkorn is nature’s original grain, the eldest of the ancient grains and is arguably the superfood among its group. But has been forgotten by mainstream media until recently. It is now making its comeback and we want to make it a staple in every American’s diet.
Wheat consumption is at an all-time high and is responsible for the main portion of our caloric intake, globally. Wheat has been hybridized and heavily refined and processed, which alters its nutrient profile. This has contributed to the increase in gluten sensitivities, which is prompting people to cut it out of their diet entirely or to suffer the consequences.
High wheat consumption has been linked to inflammation, weight gain, gut complaints and more, so finding a healthier alternative to substitute in for your favorite wheat products will benefit you and your family’s health.
Our einkorn is organic, so is not sprayed with the 100+ pesticides and herbicides common in typical wheat production. Pesticide consumption is linked to a number of illnesses and diseases. This also means that there is a lower percentage of nutrient loss during processing, so you know that you are getting nature’s very best.
Einkorn is also higher in protein and fiber, lower in starch and due to its different chromosomal makeup (7 versus 42 in regular wheat), has a lower gluten content so is safe for most people with gluten sensitivity.
Alongside this, it is high in essential dietary and trace minerals. It contains a high dose of B vitamins and thiamin, which are nutrients that most Americans are deficient in. It contains a number of key antioxidant carotenoids including lutein, which helps to fight free radicals and pathogen growth.
Einkorn has a higher oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) than other types of wheat or grains, this quantifies the total antioxidant capacity and potency. It has a similar ORAC to the most popular superfoods, putting it at the top of the list for grains and wheat.
Compared to popular superfoods, einkorn is reasonably priced and easy to substitute in baking and main meals as a carbohydrate source. If you want to improve your health, you need to be eating Virgin Wheat.
