Pearled Spelt (Italian Farro)

Category: Tag:


Farro is an ancient grain packed with B vitamins, fiber, and mineral salts, yet low in fat. Rich in antioxidants like selenium and phytic acid, farro helps prevent chronic diseases. It absorbs 2.5 times its weight in water, promoting satiety, making it ideal for low-calorie diets. Farro’s complex carbohydrates and fiber ensure a slow release of sugars, benefiting those with diabetes and cholesterol issues.

Known as “dressed grains,” farro requires a hulling process to remove its husk. Our Pearled Farro is further processed for easy digestion and quick cooking. Versatile with a nutty flavor and chewy texture, it enhances salads, soups, grain bowls, and more. Farro’s nutritional benefits and culinary adaptability make it a valuable addition to any business’s product line, catering to health-conscious consumers and gourmet markets.

Farro comes in three varieties: Einkorn (Triticum monococcum), the oldest and smallest grain known for its rich flavor and high protein content; Emmer (Triticum dicoccum), the most common variety often used in traditional Mediterranean dishes; and Spelt (Triticum spelta), which has larger grains with a slightly sweet taste, popular in baking and whole-grain dishes. Each type of farro offers unique culinary and nutritional benefits, providing businesses with versatile options to meet diverse consumer preferences.
