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.

delicious grain for mixed porridge
Nice. We've made all the whole grain dishes and ground for flour. I cook kernza and quinoa together like rice a easy course substitute that is nice,ready,to use in hot or cold dishes and salads. Cold crunchy salad in the summer is nice,
I soak the grain and add it to steel cut oats and cook them together. The taste is habit forming. Don't think I can cook the steel cut oats alone anymore.
Around the Farm Table-PBS
Great… we filmed the Kernza for a upcoming episode of the PBS series Around the Farm Table
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.
