It is our pleasure to offer you our very own Ancient and Heritage Grains!
Grains grown today are not what they used to be. A lot of studies show how harmful whole grains can be to our stomachs.
Our bodies have a difficult time breaking down whole grains. The phytic acid from modern whole grains prevent us from absorbing minerals that our bodies need.
This is why we are happy to offer or own grown Ancient and Heritage Grains!
The three types of grains that we grow are Einkorn, Spelt (Ancient Grain) and Turkey Red (Heritage Grain).
Einkorn and Spelt are the Ancient Grains that we grow. What are Ancient Grains? Ancient Grains are grains that
have been largely unchanged over the last thousands of years. Most wheat used in today’s products are
from grains that have been hybridized or altered genetically. The history of Einkorn and Spelt can be traced to
Biblical Times when Jesus lived on earth. Einkorn and Spelt are primarily still the same as they have been for thousands of years.
Some benefits of Einkorn are that it has a lower gluten content, it is easier to digest and is healthier
than other grains. Einkorn provides a larger array of minerals, vitamins, and up to 40% more protein
and up to 65% more amino acids. Spelt has similar benefits to Einkorn as far as digestion and vitamins and minerals.
It does, however, have more gluten and less protein than Einkorn.
Turkey Red is the Heritage Grain that we grow. What are Heritage Grains? Heritage Grains are grains
that have been grown before the 1900s when a lot of intensive scientific plant breeding began. Turkey
Red has been known to be easier to digest for those who have gluten intolerance issues. Like Einkorn and Spelt,
Turkey Red has more health benefits and is easier on digestion than grains found in stores today.
The way we grow and process our grains is the cherry on top! We do not use chemicals in our growing
process. We do not use synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, pesticide or fungicides. We do not use
glyphosate to harvest our grains like many commercial farms in the U.S. Our Einkorn, Spelt and Turkey Red
flours are whole grain, meaning that they include the bran, endosperm and germ. You get all of the
benefits from the whole grain without harmful chemicals! Our flour is not bleached or enriched.
You can purchase our Einkorn, Spelt and Turkey Red flour from our website, www.bvpmarket.com. For
those grain enthusiast who like to mill their own flour, our Einkorn berries and Turkey Red berries are
also available on our website. These flours can be used in place of whole wheat flour in recipes from bread to pie crust to pancake batter.
But wait! There’s more!
We also sell our very own puffed wheat cereal! It’s a healthy, quick and easy breakfast or snack throughout the day.
