WHAT IS Khorasan Wheat?
Khorasan is an ancient grain related and compared to Durum wheat. Khorasan is a NON-GMO grain. Now we have Khorasan Flour for your convenience.
Khorasan, like spelt, is more easily digested, more water-soluble, and tends to be more friendly with gluten-intolerant people. Many people who are suffering from gluten intolerances can use Khorasan in their diet – but each body is different, and I make no guarantees.
HOW DO I USE Khorasan Wheat in RECIPES?
Khorasan is best used in noodle or pasta recipes or even in cakes, donuts, and pastries. Some say it doesn’t usually make good bread when used by itself, however, I use it in my bread (sometimes I mix it with spelt), and it turns out great! My favorite is making pizza crust.
OUR LOCALLY GROWN KHORASAN + Nutrition:
Khorasan tends to be higher in protein and many minerals, especially selenium, zinc, and magnesium compared to modern wheat. It also tends to have a higher amount of lipids which gives you more energy than carbohydrates!
Khorasan flour is best stored in an air-tight, cool, dark place to maintain its excellent nutrient value and it is best to use it as soon as possible. White Khorasan flour will last longer than whole wheat Khorasan flour.
