Ancient grains refer to grains that have not been changed by selective GMO breeding over recent millennia. We source all of our grains from countries that have a total ban on all GMO's, herbicides and pesticides, such as Turkey & Kyrgyzstan.
Only 22 countries out of 195 have a total ban on GMO foods and Monsanto.
An article published by the Scientific American also proves that almost ALL "Organic" food in the US is poisoned with chemicals and we must source some of the real organic foods from outside of the US. There are over 20 chemicals commonly used in the growing and processing of organic crops that are approved by the US Organic Standards.
We are pleased and honored to be offering these ancient grains from these total ban NON GMO countries with no Monsanto GMOs, chemicals or pesticides. You will taste the difference, guarantied.

Buckwheat belongs to a group of foods commonly called pseudocereals. Pseudocereals are seeds that are consumed as cereal grains but don’t grow on grasses. Other common pseudocereals include quinoa and amaranth.
Despite its name, buckwheat is not related to wheat and is thus gluten-free. It’s used in buckwheat tea or processed into groats, flour, and noodles. The groats, used in much the same way as rice, are the main ingredient in many traditional European and Asian dishes. Buckwheat has become popular as a health food due to its high mineral and antioxidant content. Its benefits may include improved blood sugar control.
Bulgur wheat is an ancient grain that packs a nutritional punch into each nutty bite. The Old Testament mentions bulgur, and the wheat was popular in the ancient Mediterranean region. Bulgur mixes well with herbs and vegetables and is the main ingredient in popular Middle Eastern dishes such as tabbouleh (bulgur salad) and kibbeh (a kind of meatball).
Bulgur’s health benefits come mainly from its high-fiber content as a whole grain. High-fiber grains help you with digestion, gut health, and weight management. The FDA even affirms that high-fiber, low-fat diets help reduce the risk of cancer and prevent coronary heart disease.
