Einkorn is one of the oldest grain known to have been used by humans. Originated in the Middle East it is an ancient form of wheat. It has a higher content of protein but less gluten than wheat. Due to a high level of carotene and carotenoid components Einkorn has a yellowish colour.
Einkorn flakes can be used just like rolled oats: either in a cooked breakfast such as porridge; briefly soaked in milk, water or juice or mixed with other flakes or breakfast cereals. You can also add them when baking cakes or biscuits.
