True farro, original Italian spelt has a long and glorious history. It is one of the oldest foods on earth. Farro is a wheat-like plant and grain that is rich in fiber, magnesium and vitamins A, B, C and E, mineral salts and protein, as well as being low in gluten. It has a complex, nutty taste and is lighter than other whole grains. When cooked, Farro releases a creamy liquid, while retaining its tender, distinct bite making it an ideal, healthy choice for risotto style dishes and sweet puddings.
