Farro is a grain similar to pearl barley, but is dried in such a way that instead of being fluffy and spongy it becomes chewy and nutty. It has an unusual flavour half-way between rice and couscous. A whole grain, farro contains the outer germ and bran, thus retaining more fibre and nutrients. It takes longer to digest, keeping you feeling full for longer and providing sustained energy.
Although not gluten-free, farro is considerably lower in gluten than commercial wheat varieties. Some people with mild wheat sensitivities often find it easier to digest.
Montebello Farro is organic.
