Over the past few years, quinoa has paved the way for ‘ancient grains’ to make their way into the American household. Now, ancient grains have become a staple in every grocery store and rapidly growing in popularity due to their outstanding nutritional properties. Ancient grains are considered to be grains that have been cultivated since the beginning of time and haven't been modified or cross-bred. A healthier alternative to modern grains, ancient grains are high in fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Not only are ancient grains abundant in minerals such as magnesium and phosphorous, they also add dimension to flavor profiles.
