Einkorn

Einkorn (Contains gluten)

The name “einkorn” means “single grain” due to the fact that each spikelet on the plant contains only one grain. It has a nuttier flavor than modern standard wheat and is a great alternative for standard wheat flour.

One of the first plants to be domesticated and cultivated, einkorn is the most ancient wheat. According to Syrian archaeological evidence, it may have been wild harvested as early as 30,000 years ago, but was domesticated approximately 10,000 years ago.

Nutrition

Einkorn has a higher percentage of protein than modern red wheats and is considered more nutritious because it has also higher levels of fat, phosphorus, potassium, pyridoxine, and beta-carotene. Einkorn helps strengthen bones with its calcium content, protects your body’s cells with zinc and supports immunity with vitamin B-6 and vitamin A. It’s also an excellent source of iron, magnesium, thiamin, riboflavin and niacin.

Note: Weight of a cup (or partial cup) of flour varies depending upon whether it is lightly sprinkled into a measuring cup or compacted. Most recipe measurements are based on sifted flour as a way to arrive at more uniform measurement.

Gluten Content & Allergen Information

Those who are sensitive to the proteins in wheat usually have no reaction to foods prepared with einkorn flour. However, because einkorn contains gluten it is not suitable for anyone with Celiac disease or wheat allergies.

Substitutes and Alternatives to Einkorn Flour

If you’re going gluten-free, several of the alternative flours are worth considering: amaranth, brown rice, quinoa, and buckwheat all make excellent gluten-free flours.

“We love the mill! We use it every day for things from bread, to pastry and it is phenomenal. The biggest selling point for me was the fineness since that would mean we can really do some great pastry with it in addition to bread. It definitely has been great!"
