Heirloom Organic White Sonora Wheat

An ancient grain newly emerging from its historic quietude as a flavorful and nutritious gift to Southwestern cuisine—a real boon to desert agriculture and health! Heirloom Organic White Sonora Wheat has been kept alive and well in a Sonoran village for 300 years, “rediscovered” and propagated by Native Seeds/SEARCH plant-sleuths, and at last being grown commercially by a few caring farmers in Baja Arizona. This particular Triticum aestivum variety is a winter wheat for the desert.

This delectable gluten-free mesquite flour is grown sustainably in Arizona from our own native velvet mesquite which has the choicest and sweetest pods. It is a raw agricultural product ground from the whole pod, seed and all, cleaned, thoroughly dried, ground to a fine meal, uncooked. It contains a high amount not only of complex carbohydrates and fiber, but also it is highest protein content of any mesquite meals or flour. Mesquite meal is excellent for adding to baked goods, smoothies, hot cereals, pancakes, and hot drinks. It was a traditional food of Tohono O'odham and Piman people, and other Natives of the Sonoran Desert, keeping them healthy and strong.
