Why You Can’t Trust Marketers of Einkorn

Can't Trust Einkorn

Spelt, kamut, farro…these are ancient grains but were some of the first hybridized grains through nature’s cross pollination. They have 28 chromosomes, double the chromosomes of einkorn. They are a better source than wheat for sure, but they are still double the chromosomes.

If you think you can order einkorn online, the websites will tell you they’ve got it; and they’ll send it to you and collect your money. I’ve done it, from a farm in Idaho, one in Montana, and three in Washington. I received kamut or spelt from all of them.

I went all the way to Italy last year because a farm was advertising it was growing einkorn. So I flew to Italy to see the fields. They were growing spelt and selling it as einkorn. A big difference. So beware. I explain it in my book Ancient Einkorn: Today’s Staff of Life.
