What is Einkorn?
Einkorn has been eaten for more than 12,000 years by humans, and archaeologists believe that the first loaves of bread were made with it. It has been cherished by villagers throughout the ages for its rich flavor, digestibility, and high nutrition; containing more antioxidants, protein, and minerals than modern wheat.

Einkorn wheat is higher in protein than any other small grain and scores zero on the gluten index! (despite containing gluten) which means anybody with a gluten sensitivity should be able to digest it easily.

Unlike the strong gluten in genetically modified wheat, it’s super gentle on your digestion.

It contains an average of 30% higher protein; 15% less starch; 200% higher lutein; 50% greater manganese, riboflavin, and zinc; and about 20% higher magnesium, thiamin, niacin, iron, and vitamin B6 than modern wheat making it an all round better nutritional choice.

About Pastaficio Carleschi

They were the very first British, Artisan dry pasta producer in the UK and their pasta has won numerous Great Taste awards. 

“Sustainability is at the heart of every decision made at Pastificio Carleschi. We chooses to work with sustainability focused farmers and millers in the UK who are actively looking to enhance the health of the soil and environment whilst producing their heritage grains. These grains were specifically chosen because not only do they grow well in a low input organic system, but because of their height and root density they are perfectly designed to strive in a regenerative farming system. On top of this, they are rich in fibre and boost a variety of micronutrients not found in modern wheat, so you can imagine why using and creating a demand for these types of grains are beneficial now and crucial for our future.

More benefits to sourcing locally include guaranteed freshness, total traceability and low food miles. We are certified organic by the Soil Association so all grains and milled products are grown without chemical herbicides, pesticides, fungicides and chemicals. Simply put, it’s wheat as nature intended. This method maintains the quality of the soil, fosters biodiversity, reduces pollution from nitrogen run-off, uses less energy and supports both human and animal welfare. Other sustainable strategies we implement include how our London based factory runs completely on 100% green energy and have 100% plastic free packaging.”
