What is Virgin Wheat?
Original Ancient Wheat, Never Hybridized or Modified, Pure as It Was in 12,000 BC
Virgin Wheat, also called einkorn, is the original and pure form of wheat that dates back thousands of years.
Virgin Wheat was one of the first cultivated cereal grains. It looks like modern wheat but it is significantly smaller in size. It is easy to cook like rice and more delicious than modern wheat. It is also higher in protein and many other nutrients.
Virgin Wheat differs from modern wheat in many ways. Virgin Wheat has never been hybridized or genetically modified. Its genetic structure is completely different from today’s wheat: it consists of two sets of 7 chromosomes where modern wheat has 42 chromosomes. Its gluten structure is different than modern wheat, too. There are very recent that point to a better tolerability of einkorn for non-celiac gluten sensitivity patients, because of its very low total ATI protein content.
Now it’s time to return to the ancient grains of our ancestors who ate healthy, organic, and pure wheat.
