Bite into history with First Ever™ Whole Grain Einkorn Pasta, developed from the world’s most ancient wheat! This hearty, nutritious pasta has a distinctly unique flavor that sets it apart from other whole wheat pastas available today. There is a good reason for the texture and taste!
When scientists unearthed the body of Ötzi, the Bronze Age man found perfectly preserved in a glacier in the Italian Alps in 1991, they discovered he had eaten an ancient species of wheat called einkorn for his last meal. A group of Italian researchers became curious about the grain and started what would be more than a decade of discovery. Their findings so intrigued the founders of Jovial™ that they began to work closely together to bring the supply of seeds and grain back to life.
Certified USDA Organic, Einkorn Pasta boasts a multitude of health benefits that are not found in other pasta varieties today. The flavor alone makes Einkorn stand out from the crowd, but the nutritional highlights include a whopping 9 grams of protein (vegetarians and vegans will rejoice about that little trivia fact!) and 4g of dietary fiber per serving. In addition, Einkorn Pasta contains as much lutein as is found in one whole egg, and is high in both thiamin and B vitamins. This historical little grain is truly a superfood!
Jovial™ Whole Grain Einkorn Pasta is available in five varieties: Rigatoni, Penne Rigate, Fusilli, Spaghetti and Linguine. The pastas are available at Whole Foods Market nationwide. For more information, visit www.jovialfoods.com.
