Ok, ok… I’ll admit it. I’m kinda obsessed with Einkorn! And really, it’s no wonder…
Not only does it taste amazing, but it also allows my family (most of whom have severe reactions to gluten) to enjoy our favorite recipes without trying to convert them to gluten free.
But wait, doesn’t Einkorn Flour contain gluten?
It does, yes. However, because Einkorn is the “original grain” and has never been hybridized (I’m not just talking about GMOs, I’m talking about the stuff that was done to grain even in ancient times!), your body actually knows what to do with it to break it down properly.
See, modern wheat has 42 chromosomes whereas Einkorn only has 14. This makes it much easier on our bodies and in most people does not trigger an allergic response.
In fact, the author of the book Wheat Belly excluded Einkorn from his statements regarding wheat as the Einkorn flour doesn’t cause the body to react in the same way that other wheat does! You can read more about there here.
