The flour used to “Mythic Gaea” products, is made from organic Greek cereals. Organic farming is a cultivation method which completely avoids the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, plant growth regulators and hormones.
The organic farmers rely on crop rotation (rotation crops for harvest), crop residues, fallow, manure and mechanical cultivation to control weeds.
Organic farming is often associated with practices, such as Fair Trade, reduced emissions of carbon dioxide and environmental management.
The production of flour and products derived therefrom takes place only in small certified organic manufacturing units. There producers implement only traditional recipes and production methods. In these small farms only organic raw materials treated and observe strictly the rules of modern food processing science.
Ingredients: Organic flour 70% (triticum dicoccum), salt, water
This product is made from organic Emmer wheat flour.
Emmer is probably the oldest cereal of this world and was the key component in the diet of ancient Greeks.
It features an undeniable nutritional value.
Emmer's (Zea) scientific name is “Triticum dicoccum” and although it externally looks similar to wheat, it has a different nutritional composition.
It shouldn’t however be confused with the German Dinkel or rye.
Emmer is highly nutritious and contains important nutrients, which make it superior to other cereals. It is two times richer in dietary fiber, in comparison with other wheat, a fact that makes it a good choice for people suffering from diabetes.
It is two times richer in protein and features a high content of the amino acid lysine and the vitamins A, B, C and E.
Lysine is that particular component of proteins that increases their digestibility, boosts the immune system and it’s a key element for the brain’s biochemical functioning.
