Features

Einkorn flour (translated literally as “single-grain” flour) may also be more digestible than other wheats due to it being a single grain and minimally processed, and this may help those with digestion problems unrelated to gluten. Because of its gentle composition and purity, einkorn is a great wheat alternative to those on a diet or with occasional stomach problems.

Since Einkorn has less gluten than most wheat varieties, its flour is not ideal for baking loaves of bread or other rising foods. However, there are countless Einkorn recipes for great pastries and meals where Einkorn flour can truly shine.

Some of these top foods include:Muffins, Cookies, Crusts and Salads.  Cooking with Einkorn flour is the same as with any other flour, but you'll get more essential vitamins, minerals, and protein per cup with this ancient grain.

中文介紹

古麥種通常是指在1960年代以前,未經農業科學技術加以進行基因改造的麥種。Einkorn單粒小麥是一種遠古野生小麥,也是目前唯一非雜交品種,為2倍體AA(14個)染色體的麥種。在18,000多年前開始被人類種植。由於在Einkorn的莖上有單粒的麥,德文將其譯為「一粒(single grain)」。今天所有品種的麥種都是Einkorn野生麥的後裔。

古麥種麥均含有麥麩(gluten),但是DNA的結構卻和現代小麥種不一樣。雖然含有豐富的麥麩,卻容易被人體消化分解,不會造成消化不良或是過敏。現代小麥種內的D基因群中,含有一些在古麥種所沒有的麥蛋白,而這些麥蛋白被視為是引發現代人過敏、腹瀉、肥胖等問題的來源。

古麥種的蛋白質含量比現代麥類多出30%,而澱粉含量卻比現代麥種少了30%。在營養成分上更加全面,含有豐富的維生素B群和其他礦物質、抗氣化劑和葉黃素。並且在製造成麵粉的過程中,不會流失大量養份。目前醫學研究調查數據顯示這些古麥種有降低眼疾、減重、降低緩和糖尿病的罹患率等。因此這些瀕臨絕種、產量少的古麥品種,才又受到人們的重視。

    Perfect Einkorn flour for your bread!

    I am very pleased to share with you my thoughts on Daybreak Mill's einkorn flour that I use regularly for my daily bread.
    I have tried several providers of einkorn flour, from the US, from Europe. I should mention, that I am not expert in bread bakery and maybe this is why my experiments with these foreign flours were not fully satisfactory, if not discouraging... When I tried Daybreak' flour I was first surprised by its color, much darker, maybe due to harsh Saskatchewan's climate that gives it a big dose of carotene and other minerals so beneficial for health ! Nevertheless, there is no doubt that I have a much better control of the dough with Daybreak' flour, on its plasticity, which is essential for bakery: this was the 2nd happy surprise. Before the 2nd raising of the dough, I mix the dough with chopped eikcorn and oat grains that were soaked as many hours as the time required for 1st raising the dough. The end result is wonderful, a very tasty, orange-like color bread that any person who is intolerant to gluten can digest and enjoy ! I find important to support this family business who provides unique and healthy products in Canada. Actually, I also offer their products to my relatives in Europe!
