Wheat is a staple in many diets around the world. However, due to the increased manipulation of and hybridization of modern grains like corn and wheat, consumers have become enamored with ancient grains. Why? Well, ancient grains are less processed and, as a result, less likely to cause digestive problems or intolerance. While many people choose to eat ancient grains simply by using them as the base of a dish, or a side, nowadays there are plenty of other ways to enjoy these nutrient-dense wonders. One of the most notable ways is by transforming them into flour!
