Farro Grain Whole 1 kg Epigrain
Is Farro better than other grains? Well, for one, it's "ancient". Whole grain farro is delicious and think rustic Italian food. Chefs prize it for its nutty flavour, delicate chew, and versatility. However, the word "better" to describe farro is subjective, but, it's fair to say that it makes a great gateway grain. Farro is delicious as a hot breakfast cereal and in soups, salads, side dishes, and even desserts (a little crumbled fresh ricotta, a drizzle of honey—you get the picture).

- A HEALTHY CHOICE – Farro grains are extremely high in fibre, iron, zinc, magnesium, vitamin B and protein. It’s also sure to fill you up , since it’s an unprocessed grain; this means it has an intact bran and germ, the parts of the grain that provide nutrients, protein and fiber, which winds up swelling up in your digestive tract, keeping you satisfied for longer than refined grains. As an unprocessed grain, it is also high in antioxidants.
- HIGH VERSATILITY – Farro grain is extremely versatile and can be utilized in myriad recipes.

- ALTERNATIVE DIET COMPATIBILITY – Farro grain is natural food that is 100% vegan and vegetarian friendly, and its high level of nutrients make it all the more suited for a balanced diet of that sort. And while farro grain does contain gluten, it contains lower levels than today’s wheat, and if prepared properly, the gluten is pre-digested and broken down by sprouting and fermentation like a sourdough process. This makes it much more tolerable with anyone sensitive to gluten.
COOKING INSTRUCTIONS: In a pot, place 1 cup of farro and 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until chewy and tender. Remove from the heat and drain off any excess liquid. Fluff the farro with a fork. Season to taste.
