Ancient Grains: New Discoveries from Pre-History

For people who are trying to eat heart-healthy food, or who just want to eat a more balanced and nutrient-rich diet, ancient grains are a great solution.

 

Ancient Grains are the perfect blend of nutrition – with 
22 grams of whole grain per serving – and taste – with a nutty flavor and satisfying crunch. Ancient grains remain virtually untouched by today’s mass production techniques, which can remove a great deal of the nutritional value from grains. They retain all the nutrients our bodies were designed to thrive on. In addition, the “old world” grains have a more flavorful, distinct 
taste than modern grains.
