Rich in fiber (approx. 10%), protein (approx. 15%), magnesium, and vitamins, Emmer also becomes a complete protein source when combined with legumes, making Emmer grains and pastas ideal for vegetarians, or anyone simply looking for a plant-based high-protein food source.
Diabetics: Emmer is high in fibre and a slow-release carbohydrate.
Gluten Intolerance: Emmer's gluten structure is older than spelt's and somewhat less irritating. Most non-caeliac gluten-intolerant individuals have been able to tolerate it without difficulty."
