These are whole unmilled organic Emmer wheat berries.
Emmer (German for “hulled grain”) is one of the earliest forms of cultivated grains. Dating back thousands of years, like Einkorn Emmer was allegedly found in the tombs of ancient Egypt. It is referred to by some as “The Pharaoh’s Wheat”. Emmer in its wild form is a cross between Einkorn and grass. It is unique in flavor, nutritional benefits and genetic makeup. Where modern wheat has 42 chromosomes, Emmer has only 28.
This Emmer is a whole grain product that differs from the Italian import Emmer which is semi-pearled.
Some Additional Emmer Attributes:
Note on sprouting emmer: Some ancient grains, such as einkorn and emmer, grow natively in a hull that does not separate from the kernel during harvest. Dehulling these grains (removing the hull) is done to prepare them for milling into flour used for baking. Dehulling, however, also results in berries that do not sprout as well as they would if they had been left in the hull. While some of our customers have had decent germination success from some of our emmer, most have not. I do not know why the variation but please don’t buy einkorn or emmer if you need them solely for sprouting.
