Pearled and selected organic Emmer, Dicoccum variety.
The widespread diffusion of the emmer (original denominations: far or Triticum diccoides) may be considered at the base of the diet of the Mediterranean civilizations as well as of those established in Asia Minor initially and, in a second step, of the societies belonging to the ancient Roman Empire. During the supremacy of the Romans, the emmer became essential as food for the militias thanks to its resistance to pathogens and to the unfavorable climatic conditions. As the emmer grows up vigorously in poor soils and thanks to its resistance to cold weather conditions, the Romans started to intensify its cultivation on the hills of the Sabina area (central Italy), particularly in the region of Umbria, in the Valnerina’s area.
During the Middle Ages, the emmer cultivation has been progressively abandoned due to the difficulty in collecting the wheat from the fields resulting in a generous intensification of the production of other cereals and grains.
Nowadays, the emmer is highly appreciated in kitchen operations due to the ease of cooking and thanks to its flavor, to the nutrition facts and the characteristic of being the cereal with the lowest caloric content.
The grains it consists of are named “cariassi” and they may be consumed as dehusked or cracked spelt, that is in their wholegrain sources richer in terms of dietary fiber and even pearled, which is obtained by peeling the hardest external layer. The spelt may be savored matched with vegetables or other legumes, broth, soups and first courses. This pod (wheat) is also renowned to be excellent for the preparation of bread and focaccia bread, pasta, breadsticks, biscuits and desserts in general.
Modern medical research has shown that the traditional flours made of refined and gluten-rich grits determine the increase in the value of foodborne illnesses as the celiac disease. Emmer represents a perfect cereal and a great choice for a healthy low-calorie diet, containing mineral salts like magnesium. This cereal is also recommended for diabetics due to the ease in absorbing insulin.
As it prevents muscle cramps, an emmer-based diet is highly recommended for athletes and among all those people who daily practice sports as well as for women due to the high calcium and iron content.
