WHAT IS Khorasan Wheat?
Khorasan is an ancient grain related and compared to Durum wheat. Khorasen is a NON-GMO grain.
Khorasan, like spelt, is more easily digested, more water-soluble, and tends to be more friendly with gluten-intolerant people. Sometimes people who are suffering from gluten intolerances are able to use Khorasan in their diet – but each body is different, and I cannot guarantee that it will work.
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 do use it in my bread when I mix it with spelt. It turns out great!
