What are Ancient Grains? A Complete Guide (So You Can Give Them a Try!)

As you may have noticed, many health-conscious people are trying to eat more intact grains these days, moving away from refined/commercial breads and other white flour-based products that comprise much of the Western diet. The go-to “alternatives” tend to be familiar choices, such as oats, rice and corn. And yet, there is a whole world of fascinating grains beyond these American standards.

What are ancient grains?

One of the most intriguing classes of grains, with a long and venerated history, is the family of “ancient grains.” Why the special designation, since virtually all grains have been around throughout human evolution? Great question! As it happens, some of the most widely consumed Westernized grains today scarcely resemble their historical counterparts, especially wheat, which has been dramatically altered over the centuries. Among the more significant of these alterations was dramatically increasing the content of gluten in wheat through the process of hybridization. Bigger, better loaves through modern science! Yet, gluten is also a major food allergen which can cause of range of health problems, the most serious being celiac disease, which, in a stunning coincidence, is over four times more common today than it was 50 years ago, as are gluten-related allergies and sensitivities.

The benefits of ancient grains

This brings us back to ancient grains, which, by definition, have remained essentially unchanged for thousands of years. In other words, they have not been chemically manipulated, irradiated, genetically modified and/or unnaturally hybridized. Nor do ancient grains require heavy pesticide applications or chemical fertilizers to thrive as they have from the dawn of time. Ancient grains also contain more vitamins, minerals and fiber than “modern” corn, rice and wheat, which is yet another reason they are enjoying a well-deserved renaissance in Western countries. Here is the skinny on some of these noble grains, and ideas on how best to enjoy them.
