Organic Farro, Semi-Pearled

Semi-Pearled Organic FarroFarro , is the semi-pearled form of the heirloom grain emmer (triticum dicoccum), which is an ancient precursor of wheat. It was first selected from wild grasses and domesticated as a cultivated crop by Neolithic farmers in the Fertile Crescent of the Middle East at least 10,000 years ago. While it was a staple food ingredient over the centuries across the Mediterranean region, emmer eventually fell out of favor as more modern, higher yielding wheats were developed. Thankfully, it remained popular in Italian cuisine, allowing it to be rediscovered by Western chefs in the 21st Century.

Today it is found on the menus of exclusive restaurants across Europe and America, and valued by chefs for both its chewy texture and rich, nutty flavor. Whereas whole grain emmer takes more than an hour to cook, our semi-pearled Farro will be ready in about 20 minutes at a simmer. Farro is delicious in salads, in pilafs, and soups.

Since it is an ancient relative of wheat, farro does contain gluten. But like spelt and some other heirloom grains, farro can sometimes be tolerated by those who have only moderate sensitivities to wheat and gluten.
