Kernza® Whole Grain
Kernza® Whole Grain
What is Kernza®?
Kernza® is a perennial wheatgrass. It has a truly delicious, sweet, nutty flavor, and can be used in baking, cooking, and brewing.
Why Cook with Kernza®?
Cook with Kernza® because it's delicious! What's more, Kernza® is a healthy whole grain that's high in protein, high in antioxidants, and has eight times the amount of insoluble fiber as wheat. Buying and eating Kernza® grain and flour is a tangible way to support scalable solutions to climate change and agricultural water pollution, while enjoying a new, flavorful food. Do good, eat well.
What is Perennial Agriculture?
Perennial agriculture is the solution to many challenges we face from grain production today. Perennials are plants that can be left in the field to return for several years without the annual tilling that damages topsoil and leads to erosion and nutrient losses. Perennials develop a deep root system that helps sequester carbon, filter water, and keep continuous living cover on the land. Their ecosystem services offer contrast to the greenhouse gas-intensive practices of modern annual agriculture. They produce nutritious food crops while protecting natural resources, a win-win for farmers, farming communities, food companies, and home cooks. Learn more at Kernza.org.
Kernza® contains gluten and is non-GMO. Processed in a facility that contains nuts.
Only available in the United States.
Nutty & delicious
I love kernza grain in a grain bowl with roasted vegetables and a miso sauce. I follow preparation instructions and soak several hours, but end up simmering a bit longer than suggested.
Sent as Christmas gifts
My husband cannot eat gluten. I purchased several packages for relatives. I have not had the pleasure of tasting the grain, but I may purchase more in the future and give it a try.
Cooked Kernza grain
Excellent! It was easy to cook, very similar to brown rice. But, the taste ant texture is better than brown rice!
Whole grain goodness
Excellent taste and texture. I used it an alternative to rice, couscous, quinoa for both dinner and breakfast
I will by buying more and sending it as gift. I have used the whole grain Kernza instead of farro in a couple of recipes and it is very tasty. I'll be posted recipes to the community and looking for more ideas.
