Shipton Mill Organic Einkorn Wholemeal Flour
Shipton Mill Organic Einkorn Wholemeal Flour. Ein’korn, or triticum monococcum, is one of the earliest cultivated varieties of wheat. It differs from modern wheat in that it is genetically distinct and only has single grains on either side of the ear, hence its name Ein’korn from the German 'ein' meaning one.
The earliest clear evidence of cultivation is from Southern Turkey and dates from 8,650BC. More recently grains of Einkorn have been discovered at an underwater archaeological site on the Isle of Wight where it was cultivated around 6000BC. At that time Britain was still connected by land to Europe.
Einkorn has continued to be cultivated in remote agricultural communities throughout central and southern Europe where for thousands of years these precious grains have been preserved for their remarkable qualities. Today we love making flours from these extraordinary ancient grains and strive to preserve and promote these rare and unusual varieties to protect this extraordinary Biodiversity.
