The Northern Crops Institute located in Fargo, North Dakota, has published a new handbook, Ancient Grains of the Great Plains Handbook, designed to provide an overview of ancient grains or heritage grains.

The purpose of the booklet is to deliver an introduction into ancient grains categories, their characteristics, and uses. We hope this information will aid you to gain an understanding and appreciation of the value of ancient grains as highly nutritional and functional food ingredients.

The booklet aims to provide introductory information on ancient grains so that you will delve deeper into the production, procurement, processing, and/or marketing of ancient grains and ancient grain products, the institute said in a press release. It’s also aimed to attract consumers to foods that are connected to sustainable sourcing, improving the environment and identifying the source of their food.

This booklet is an invitation for bakers to gain basic, introductory knowledge about ancient grains’ features and benefits.
