Emmer (Khapli) Wheat Flour Description
Emmer (Khapli) Wheat Flour grown by small farming communities in Jodhpur, Rajasthan
Emmer Wheat was one of the first cereal grains to be cultivated in the world from as early as 9700 BC.
Compared to modern wheat, ancient grains such as emmer are lower in gluten and higher in micronutrients like minerals and antioxidants.
Emmer Wheat is also touted to have medicinal traits – Its capacity to lower blood glucose, lipid levels and high temperature stress tolerance as compared to other cultivated species makes it therapeutic.
When the Green Revolution was initiated in the 1960s, high-yielding varieties of wheat were cultivated to increase food production in order to alleviate hunger and poverty. These were commercialised along with chemical fertilisers and are not the indigenous varieties that are home to India.
Emmer Wheat is one of the ancient strains of wheat cultivated till this date without any modification or chemical fertilisers using only ancient and organic means. Hence these grains retain their full uninhibited nutritional profile and have several health benefits because they contain more minerals and antioxidants.
