Post image for Jovial Einkhorn Review & Giveaway!

I was more than pleased to be asked to do a review for Jovial products, including the 100% Organic Einkorn products. I had seen them in my Azure Standard catalog as something new they were carrying and really wanted to see what they were like.

003 (8)

I received a package with 3 of the newest products that Jovial carries: Einkorn Wheat Berries, Einkorn Flour, and Enkorn Pasta.
If you haven't heard of Einkorn Wheat before, you must pay attention. It is a ancient grain that has never been hybridized. You can substitute this grain in any of your favorite recipes using wheat. It is a tasty, slightly nutty, but golden colored with a buttery, rich flavor. Our family found this grain to be delicious!

004 (8)

We used the wheat berries to grind into a nice, buttery colored flour. It turned out perfect in my favorite whole wheat bun recipe. The dough was smooth and very easy to work with. It reminded me of a sweet dough with milk and butter, even though I did not add either of those to my dough. I told the family that we were testing some new flour in the buns we were having. They thought they were wonderful and didn't think they were 100% whole grain. They came out fluffy and airy, with a wonderfully yellow coloring. Jovial says that the golden color is rich with the antioxidant, lutein.

The pasta that we tried was also a big hit. It was not heavy, as other 100% wheat pasta can tend to be. It was slightly nutty, a light buttery taste and the texture of it was great.

I would encourage you to give the Jovial line of flours and pasta a try. It is a wonderful, tasty change and knowing that it is nutritious and healthy for you and your family is a huge, big plus.

Until next time,

I am *always* looking for whole grain products that are easy on members of my family who were brought up on “white bread and pasta”. :) This sounds so good, especially the grain! Question – how did your buns/bread rise? Was the dough easy to work with or did it take a bit of extra work on your part? :)

What about the gluten content in this grain? I am trying to reduce the amount of gluten I eat by 95%. This sounds awesome!

I haven’t used Einkhorn flour before, I’ve never heard of it, but it sounds good, and that you can grind the grain yourself. (I’ve always wanted a flour mill anyway!) I like the description of a slightly nutty flavor! Anyway, it sounds great!
