What Is Siyez ?
Dates back to ten thousand years...
Siyez known as einkorn, an ancient wheat variety whose history dates back nearly 10 thousand years and it is grown in mountainous terrains, which is currently accepted as the ancestor of today’s wheat.
Siyez wheat, which many farms in the forested northern Turkish province of Kastamonu, not far from the Black Sea, continue to cultivate the oldest type of wheat still in existence.
The grain differs from conventional varieties due to its low level of gluten and high protein content (about 20%).
Why Must You Choose Einkorn?
The comeback of Einkorn- or, wheat as it was meant to be- marks the revival of a wheat form that is not only packed with nutrition but is also useful in pursuing a lower-gluten diet. Compared to modern wheat, and even when compared to other types of ancient wheat like Spelt or Emmer, Einkorn boasts a higher concentration of Beta Carotene and Lutein which provide anti-oxidant benefits for cells and in the case of Lutein even the eyes.
Einkorn contains more nutrients, vitamins, and dietary minerals than the modern varieties of wheat and offers a higher percentage of protein and a lower percentage of starch when compared to commercial wheat varieties. Given its superior nutritional profile, it is generally a much better choice for those who choose to eat wheat.
Einkorn wheat berries also offer greater flavor when compared to other wheat varieties which are usually stripped of flavor (and nutrients) due to hybridization and modern farming methods. While it is lower in gluten, it is not gluten-free, and as such, it is not recommended for individuals with celiac disease.
