Product Details
Harvested from History. Einkorn is the first wheat ever to be cultivated 12,000 years ago at the birth of agriculture. Einkorn was lost in time when new varieties of wheat were created by natural and commercial hybridization. Our interest in this most ancient grain was inspired by the discovery of Otzi in the Italian Alps, a Bronze Age man perfectly preserved in a glacier for over 5,000 years. Scientists determined his final meal included Einkorn. Pure and Simply Better. Einkorn is the only diploid species of wheat, meaning it has only two sets of chromosomes. Hybridization changed and complicated genetics, with all other species of wheat having more chromosomes, up to six. Higher levels of chromosomes resulted in larger cell size and changes in protein and starch structure. Nutritious and Delicious. Jovial First Ever Einkorn Pasta is high in Thiamin, essential dietary and trace minerals, a good source of protein, dietary fiber and B Vitamins. The Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) of our pasta, a measurement of total antioxidant power, is 2100uM TE/100g, more than twice that of whole durum wheat. Einkorn's deep orange-red color comes naturally from its Lutein content, .25mg per serving, equal to the amount in one large egg. Yet, what's most significant is our discovery that it makes exceptional pasta, unmistakably flavorful, enhanced only by the expertise of our Italian master pasta artisans.
