Kells Ancient Grain Flake Blend

Apr 11, 2019

Ancient grains have been extremely popular in the last decade, with Kells offering a variety of products in this area for several years. We’re delighted to announce that we’ve created a new ancient grain flake blend that has strong links to European heritage and to flour making cereals, that mankind has used for thousands of years.

Most of the flakes in the Kells Ancient Grain Flake Blend come from the wheat family, including Einkorn, Emmer and Khorasan, but it also includes the non-wheat Red Sorghum. The wheat flakes can be traced back to the ‘fertile crescent’ that was the cradle of our civilisation stretching across modern day Syria, Turkey and Iraq that included ancient Babylon.

The Ancient Grain Flake Blend from Kells are expertly blended to stop breakdown and are visually striking, giving very pleasing textures and unique flavour to any bakery product it is used in. Whether it’s used as a topping, or as an addition to a dough, cake batter or soda bread mix, the flake blend will add interest and help make a good bread, a great bread.
