DID YOU KNOW that Kernza could be the face of regenerative agriculture? The Land Institute has been conducting trials for 40 years to cross-breed "deep root" traits of perennial prairie grass cousins into annual grains.
Kernza, an intermediate wheatgrass with a sweet and nutty taste, is a perennial grain and wild relative of annual wheat. It's a sustainable solution that binds the soil, retains moisture and sequesters carbon. It is much less glutenous and more like the grains our hunter gatherer ancestors used to harvest.
General Mills is scaling up cultivation for use in Cascadian Farms cereals. Stay tuned.
