The health benefits of Einkorn

Einkorn, like many legumes, is very good for your health and it is recommended to eat it regularly!

First of all, einkorn is rich in protein which is perfect when following a vegetarian or vegan diet. In addition, it contains a lot of minerals and vitamins, especially magnesium and phosphorus. Its high fiber content also helps to facilitate digestion as well as the feeling of satiety. Finally, for people sensitive to gluten, einkorn is ideal because it is low in gluten .

Be careful not to confuse einkorn and spelled because they are two different cereals! Spelled contains more gluten.
