Emmer wheat hull
Wheat is not equal wheat. Many of its varieties has been long forgotten – among them emmer wheat, which was the basis for food of our ancestors. Now we rediscover its health-promoting properties, using it not only in the kitchen, but also as filling in household elements and toys.Emmer wheat was one of the first cultivated varieties – it was sown in the Middle East already about 10 thousand years BC. As the researchers say, it was also popular in Poland, where she was found until the 7th century. Emmer seed is unique in many ways.

These substances can enter the body through the skin, so we especially pay attention to whether the grains used in I Love Grain are grown on organic farms. The fact that the husk comes from organic farming means that it has not been sprayed chemically to accelerate its growth, extend its lifespan or combat pests. For what is natural there is always the possibility that an "unwanted guest" may appear. Due to the closed structure of spelled and emmer husk, they are more exposed to it than in the case of buckwheat and millet hulls, which have an open structure.
