Fun fact: Einkorn’s unique genetics make it very valuable in the global wheat gene bank. In 2015 and 2017, dealing with threatened supplies and difficult access due to the wars in Syria, ICARDA withdrew many samples from the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, the only occasions this has occurred to date. These samples are now being replenished, including over 300 varieties of einkorn.

Einkorn is renowned for being THE original ancient wheat. It remains the only unhybridized, diploid wheat; meaning it has fewer chromosomes than most others. This may contribute to easier digestion for those with gluten sensitivity, as many have found success replacing the common wheat in their diets with einkorn. One of the founder crops of early agriculture, einkorn has a rich cultural history.

But it also has a lot going for it beyond an impressive heritage. The small, flattened kernels mill beautifully into a light, fluffy flour that hardly seems whole grain. It is delicious in breakfast pastries like waffles and scones. Like other ancient wheats, it can be used successfully in breads, but care should be taken to avoid damaging the more fragile gluten proteins.
