  ancient grains
  Posted by: drque on Jun-03-09 2:01 PM (EST)

she's right, ancients grians tend to be packed with protein and nutrients, but
A. Quinoa is from the Andes mountains in South America, Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador, not the Mayan people in southeastern Mexico.
B. Einkorn, Emmer and Spelt are all older than Kamut, predating wheat. The DNA of spelt is somewhat different from the DNA of wheat. The DNA of Kamut is the same as the DNA of wheat and it is too similar to wheat for most people who have difficulties with wheat to tolerate it.
C. Quinoa and Amaranth are not true grains, although they are eaten like grains, they are not memebers of the grain or graminicea plant family. Quinoa is related to beets and spinach and the leaves can be eaten as a green vegetable.
