Product Description
Farro is an unhybridized ancestor of modern wheat. It has a hearty, nutty flavor and has been grown throughout Europe for centuries.
 

Today, with renewed interest in traditional and organic foods, farro is featured on the menus of many of the best restaurants in Italy and is rapidly gaining popularity in the United States.

Farro is a cereal grain. Unlike wheat, the farro husk adheres to the grain, just as in barley and oats. Its fiber content is therefore high and so are its nutrients. Vitamin E, an antioxidant important to health and disease resistance, is prevalent in farro. Protein content is high also and when combined with legumes, it forms a complete protein source.
