Our fresh milled einkorn flour is a light, soft and airy flour with a delicate sweetness. It is high in protein (18% per 50 g) and comes with a simple gluten structure which makes it a wonderful alternative for people suffering from gluten sensitivities. It is milled fresh weekly for optimum flavor, freshness and nutrition. If you are new to baking with ancient grains you will love this flour.
Like emmer and spelt, einkorn is a type of farro; an Italian term for “ancient hulled wheat.” It is a petite ancient grain berry; rich in protein, phosphorus, vitamin B6, potassium, antioxidants and amino acids.
