When we first heard about Kernza - the perennial wheat developed by the Land Institute - we immediately contacted them and said we wanted to try sprouting kernza. About a year later, we got a call from Plovgh - the company assigned to manage Kernza sales to bakers and others. Plovgh sent us 50 lbs and we immediately got to work sprouting it. Plovgh took an interest in what we were doing with Kernza and we have been sending them sprouted Kernza back to offer to their growing list of clients. Meanwhile, we quickly realized that the Kernza grain was too small for us to grind into a sprouted grain mash without blending it with sprouted spelt.
The result was remarkable - flavorful with a light, crisp texture. We strongly encourage our customers to search out Kernza and support bakers working with it. Creating demand for Kernza will help encourage more farmers to grow it, revolutionizing agriculture as we know it.
We are experimenting with Sprouted Kernza for a range of products but, for now, we are thrilled to offer it as our newest variety of a deliciously unique Flat Bread.

Spelt is an ancient grain widely popular in Europe and the Middle East thousands of years ago. Wheat eventually overtook Spelt simply because wheat offered a higher yield and was easier to clean or thrash -- Spelt has a tough outer hull (husk) that is not removed during the harvesting process.
Spelt reclaimed much of its popularity when the organic movement was spawned in the 1970's and small farm organic growers discovered that Spelt's tough outer husk was naturally resistant to bugs and blight.
Spelt contains higher amounts of vitamins and minerals than commercial varieties of wheat. Spelt is considered by many to be easier to digest than wheat due to Spelt's high water solubility which makes it particularly well suited to be sprouted. Sprouted Spelt does contain gluten, but the gluten profile is lower than most varieties of wheat.
We source our Organic Spelt from Joel and Elaine Steigman of Small Valley Milling. We got to know the Steigmans at various PASA field day events. When the Steigman's starter ordering our pita bread, we decided it was time to start working with their amazing array of organic and ancient grains.
Our sprouted Spelt flat bread is made with just two ingredients; sprouted Spelt and sea salt. We think it offers a naturally delicious flavor that is virtually unique in the marketplace.
