Travel back in time with Khorasan grain, an ancient variety of wheat that was only recently rediscovered by modern-day farmers. The history of this ancient wheat grain is a bit mysterious. Some say that Noah brought Khorasan kernels along on the ark, hence the nickname “Prophet’s Wheat.” Others call Khorasan grain “King Tut’s Wheat,” claiming it was found in the tomb of an Egyptian pharaoh. Though its origins are debated, there’s no arguing the fact that Khorasan wheat is healthy and delicious.
The plump, golden kernels of whole grain Khorasan wheat are a nutritious source of selenium, zinc, magnesium, and iron. Khorasan wheat is exceptionally high in protein, containing 7 grams of protein per serving, and a healthy dose of dietary fiber.
