Cozy up to ancient grains this fall


Ancient grains are everywhere right now--and rightfully so. This group has remained relatively genetially unchanged for millenea, a trait that is unheard of in today's major grains such as modern corn, rice, and wheat. Their tried and true qualities are said to be higher in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and flavor.

Our Jansal Valley® ancient grain blend combines  farro, freekeh, grano, red rice, rye berries and wheat berries. This particular balance has been specially selected for even cooking and harmonious flavors and textures.

Ancient grains are excellent in soups, salads, as a side, or even in place of hot breakfast cereals. Here we are combining them with nutritional power houses for an Ancient Grains Power Bowl to fuel you through your day.
