There are many reasons why ancient grains should be consumed more often. First of all, because they have not been altered, that is they have not been genetically modified by man and for this reason they have a much lower yield than the most common and modern wheat.
They are less refined because they are stone milled, moreover, they have less gluten, they are lighter, digestible and assimilable than the ones made with modern wheat.

The advantage of using ancient grains, even better if they are added to the diet with gluten free cereals, avoids the possibility of developing gluten intolerance.
