Variety

  • Emmer Twists: Emmer Wheat has origins in Ancient Egypt, in 9700 BC Emmer was one of the first cereals to be domesticated in Levant (modern day parts of the Middle East). It is an ancient member of the Farro family and like other ancient grains is higher in fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals.
  • Khorasan Macaroni: Khorasan (a.k.a Kamut Wheat) has origins in the Fertile Crescent region of the Middle East, Khorasan is an ancient relative of durum wheat (a modern wheat staple) but with grains twice the size. Khorasan has it all, including diverse cook-ability, a rich taste and higher quantities of fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals compared to modern wheat varieties.
