Einkorn is one of the earliest cultivated forms of wheat. Wild einkorn grains have been found in excavations dating back to the Epipaleolithic in the region of the Middle East known as the Fertile Crescent. It is believed that Einkorn was first cultivated around 7500 BC. in the period of the so-called Pre-Pottery Neolithic A and Pre-Pottery Neolithic B.
Einkorn has several advantages over wheat. One of them is that einkorn wheat does not hurt. This allows it to be grown without pesticides and herbicides.
Einkorn contains almost all the necessary substances that the human body needs to be healthy. Compared to the common, "modern" wheats grown today, einkorn contains more protein, minerals and B vitamins, and is also many times easier to digest than them. The fibers that make up the einkorn grain have excellent tolerance.
The positive health effects of einkorn foods are attributed to this wheat's ability to stimulate the immune system. The use of einkorn as food is also appropriate for certain types of allergies; an equally valuable quality is its easy digestibility. "Einkorn grains melt in the mouth," say those who have tried it.

The proteins in einkorn grains are different in composition and molecular weight and do not cause the symptoms caused by the protein in common wheat grain.
