Einkorn Flour Vs. Modern Wheat

Why use einkorn flour? Modern flour has been hybridized to grow well in different conditions. It has a much larger head of wheat berries. Sounds great right? Well, modern wheat also has 42 chromosomes where the oldest grain, einkorn, only contains 14. This makes it easy to digest for many with gut issues including gluten intolerance (It’s not good for celiac disease). It also packs a huge amount of nutrition not found in modern wheat and a high protein content. Einkorn has 50% less phytic acid than modern wheat. Phytic acid inhibits the absorption of nutrients. Yes, you may not actually be getting all the nutrients you think bread depending on the type of bread. Learn more about this ancient wheat HERE.

After struggling with blood sugar issues, gut issues and more I began baking with this ancient wheat. I’d been off grains for several years. I could eat bread again! At first, I just used the all purpose flour. The taste was light with a slight sweet nutty flavor. Our family soon switched over completely to using this flour. We soon invested in a Mockmill to grind the wheat berries at home. Since then, I’ve enjoyed making whole grain einkorn flour recipes and sourdough starter recipes.

A Word On Sourdough Starter

Before you jump in you may want to consider having sourdough starter on hand. Many einkorn flour recipes include using a starter. You may be used to using “active dry yeast.” Just as einkorn is the oldest form of wheat, sourdough is the oldest form of yeast.

I’ve found this form of yeast to be better on my digestive system and it’s easy to get started. I recommend whole grain einkorn flour for this and you can find the simple step by step instruction to make it HERE.

Where to Get Einkorn Flour

It isn’t common to see einkorn flour on your supermarket shelf (at least not at mine). I’ve found several places to purchase einkorn online and I’ll share my favorites.

  • Azure Standard. I love getting things from azure standard so when I found they had einkorn I was thrilled. Azure is a once per month grocery drop. After ordering online, a truck meets members at the “drop spot” for your area on a designated day. They currently offer whole grain einkorn flour.
  • is a company that produces einkorn from (local to me) Idaho! I’m an affiliate for these guys and have been so impressed by the einkorn grain I use for milling. In my opinion, this is the place to purchase bulk.
  • is a favorite among einkorn flour bakers. Jovial has been the biggest company to sell einkorn flour and has done so with great quality.

As always, do internet searches. I’ve been able to find some coupon codes to snag flour at better prices.
