Benefits of EinkornEinkorn is a fairly rare variety of grain, so some of you may be going "What the heck is Einkorn?"

Einkorn is man's first known variety of cultivated wheat.It is full of nutrition - works as an immunity booster, helps prevent cancer & heart disease, creates energy in the body and slows aging, and is also good for keeping the eyes in healthy condition.

Einkorn is considered by many experts to be the oldest form of cultivated wheat, with findings as early as 16,000-15,000 BC.

 The wheat we eat today isn’t like what they ate thousands of years ago. In nutrition sampling tests, Einkorn has been found to be a “more nutritious” grain. Einkorn contains higher levels of protein, essential fatty acids, phosphorous, potassium, pyridoxine (B6),and beta-carotene (lutein).

The Einkorn flour is characterized by high protein, high ash, a very high carotene content, and small flour particle size when compared to the modern bread wheats.’s a reason people ate this stuff for thousands of years and called it the staff of life.

Here are some interesting facts we have learned about the nutritional content and health benefits of einkorn:

Wheat gluten studies have found einkorn wheat may be non-toxic to suffers of gluten intolerance.

Einkorn wheat has 14 chromosomes while modern wheats have 42 (Friendlier to the body’s digestive system)

Einkorn contains 3 to 4 times more beta-carotene than modern wheats (Boosts immunity, helps prevent cancer and heart disease)

Einkorn contains 2 times more Vitamin A (retinol equivalent) than modern wheats (Healthy eyes, reproductive organs and prevention of many cancers)

Einkorn contains 3 to 4 times more lutein than modern wheats (Prevention of macular degeneration and cataracts)

Einkorn contains 4-5 times more riboflavin than modern wheats (Used by the body to create energy and is an antioxidant that slows aging)

Einkorn is a “hulled” wheat, whereas modern wheats are not.The hull can protect the grain from stray chemical contamination and insects making it an easier grain to grow ORGANICALLY!

The Einkorn Berries can be used as rice or ground into flour.

I will never buy rice again after using the Einkorn Berry!

 

Golden Flax: Should you add flax seed to your diet? Absolutely, flax seed truly is a super food, power packed with nutritional benefits. Omega-3 Fatty Acids.

Stocked inside this tiny little seed are two impressive compounds: lignans and alpha linolenic acid which appear to help us battle heart attacks, high blood pressure, breast and colon cancer, arthritis, severe menstrual cramps, even depression! What's mind boggling is that flax seed has more of these two compounds than any other food by far!

Medical Researchers around the world agree there's absolutely nobody who won't benefit from adding flax seed to their diet. With just a simple coffee grinder you can grind the flax to add to your favorite dishes, just remember to grind the Flax as you need it as Ground Flax will go rancid rather quickly

 

Pot Barley:  What’s the difference between pot barley and pearl barley? Pot barley is the unrefined, whole grain. Pearling removes the barley’s bran covering. Pearled barley is easier to cook but has less fiber and fewer nutrients than pot barley.

If you are having a bad time suffering from asthma, arthritis, impotence, skin problems, anemia, obesity, constipation, diabetes, hypertension, kidney problems or heart disease; its time you should learn about the health benefits of barley. Recent researches say consuming whole grain barley regulates blood sugar to a great extent. The health benefits of barley actually counts from the eight essential amino acids.

As we come across too many ailments nowadays, it proves to us even more that our regular diet lacks the important nutrients. One of the most important nutrients is fibre that we often tend to neglect. Barley is an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble fiber that assures you of overall good health in the long term.

 

Green Lentils: With about 30% of their calories from protein, lentils have the third-highest level of protein, by weight, of any legume or nut, after soybeans and hemp. Proteins include the essential amino acids isoleucine and lysine, and lentils are an essential source of inexpensive protein.

Lentils also contain dietary fiber, folate, vitamin B1, and minerals. Red (or pink) lentils contain a lower concentration of fiber than green lentils (11% rather than 31%). Lentils are often mixed with grains, such as einkorn berries, rice or small pasta, which results in a complete protein dish. Lentils, a small but nutritionally mighty member of the legume family, are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber. Not only do lentils help lower cholesterol, they are of special benefit in managing blood-sugar  disorders since their high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising rapidly after a meal. But this is far from all lentils have to offer. Lentils also provide good to excellent amounts of six important minerals, two B-vitamins, and protein - all with virtually no fat. The calorie cost of all this nutrition? Just 230 calories for a whole cup of cooked lentils. This tiny nutritional giant fills you up—not out.

Lentils are a good source of iron.

Iron for Energy:

In addition to providing slow burning complex carbohydrates, lentils can increase your energy by replenishing your iron stores. Particularly for menstruating women, who are more at risk for iron deficiency, boosting iron stores with lentils is a good idea - especially because, unlike red meat, another source of iron, lentils are not rich in fat and calories. Iron is an integral component of hemoglobin, which transports oxygen from the lungs to all body cells, and is also part of key enzyme systems for energy production and metabolism. And remember: If you're pregnant or lactating, your needs for iron increase. Growing children and adolescents also have increased needs for iron.

 

The Mill where we have sourced out is 100% Canadian and Certified Organic: They are both made from a variety of Hard Red Spring. Wheat called Selkirk, out of the early 1950's.  This variety is one of the few varieties of wheat available on the market today that is free from any genetic manipulation (not to be confused with genetic modification).  There are lots of people who can't handle modern day wheat but they can handle this wheat product just fine, based on the heritage variety Selkirk that the Mill carries.  The mill has grown Selkirk wheat for as very long time, and they have always saved their seeds year after year.  The 7 Grain Flour gives the consumer a nice mix of grains, so it is very healthy.  The flax in it is one of the best assets of this flour IMO as it contains many essential amino acids that people are generally lacking in their diet. See below the nutritional content of the 7 Grain Flour:

The Mill has farmed without pesticides, herbicides and man-made fertilizers since 1964. They have pioneered with organic methods, farming this way long before it was popular.  One of the original founders has extensive knowledge of health (plant, soil, and human). His knowledge in the organic field includes topics of soil health, grains, processed grains, and qualities of grains. His product line is known nationwide and its integrity and quality is second to none.  

 They realized that the chemicals were negatively affecting their soil and physical health along with adding an unhealthy supply to the food chain.  In 1996 they received their first organic certification. The Mill once again changed hands in January of 2012 and the quality and nutrition of their products remains the same.  They still farm organically, paying close attention to soil and plant health throughout the growing season. They use crop rotations and plow downs to keep their soil healthy, and in turn keeps their crops healthy.

At the Mill they have two sets of cleaning equipment, both capable of cleaning to 99.99% standards of purity. One set does all custom work while the other is for cleaning and bagging of product they grow. Their product is carefully cleaned with several machines to be sure the grains are free of any foreign debris.

Their goal is to maintain the founder’s integrity and quality. He’s still very much interested in farming, has a large garden, and frequently drops in.  The Mill appreciates his knowledge and expertise, and are pleased he is still a part of the business he created. He is very happy to share his knowledge and enthusiasm for organic practices.  His passion for health inspires them to continue down the path of holistic living. We are very fortunate and proud to be a part of this Canadian Gem.
