Khorasan is a foundational ancient grain that originated over 4,000 years ago and contributed to many of today's Durum wheat varieties. This heritage grain features a very large lightly-coloured kernel, showcasing a smooth, sweet, buttery flavour that is excellent for salads, baked goods and pilafs.
Khorasan boasts about 30% more protein and 65% more amino acids than wheat and is rich in zinc, magnesium and vitamin E. It is easily digested due to its simple makeup and high solubility in water (especially compared to conventional wheats). Individuals who experienced certain types of allergic reactions to products made from common wheat are often able to eat Khorasan although it is still not recommended for those suffering from celiac disease as it does contain gluten.What to make with it: Sourdough, pizza, pound cake, muffins and cookies.
