Dinkel is the most ancient cereal, known to humanity appreciated not only because it was ignored by civilization but due to the "improvements" made by botanists and agronomists. It is the composition that makes this cereal special and unique.
Compared to classical wheat it contains more iron in the dinkel, which has a positive effect on the blood circulatory system, and B vitamins. Silicic acid, which is also a part of a grain crop, has a revitalizing effect on the nails, hair and skin of a person, improves brain function. Dinkel contains selenium, vitamins A, E, D, copper, zinc and amino acids, which reduce cholesterol levels in the blood and improve digestion. Micropolysaccharides strengthen the human immune system.
The crop contains protein in a larger volume than in other cereals and consists of fourteen essential amino acids. Among them there is tryptophan: an essential element for a good mood and strong nervous system. It is tryptophan that "converts" serotonin into the happiness hormone. Its deficiency is a common cause of the development of depressive disorders, insomnia and digestive problems.
Carbohydrates in dinkel are slow. In the body they are decomposed and absorbed gradually, without causing a sharp jump in blood sugar. Porridge and other dishes from dinkel are not only satisfying and nutritious, but also gentle for the figure.
If you are allergic to gluten (gluten sensitive entheropathy), pay attention to the dinkel, its gluten content is extremely low. Very often this crop becomes a real discovery and salvation for people with gluten intolerance.
