Organic Emmer wheat has got the nutritional features typical of cereals:
- high content of starch;
- low protein content (the gluten is less tough but present);
- good source of fibres;
- unsaturated fats and vitamins in the seed.
Emmer wheat is different than common and durum wheats for some particular characteristics regarding a higher content of mineral salts, a more thick aleuronic layer, the richness in beta-glucans.
Emmer wheat, in addition, has got a low glycemic index and, for this reason, it is particularly suitable for people who practice sports and agonistic activities, but also for those who practice sedentary jobs or who soffer diabetic diseases.
