Khapli or Emmer is a long-grain wheat with numerous health benefits. Its low glycemic-index helps keep blood sugar in control, making it a smart choice for diabetics. It is low-gluten, lowers bad-cholestrol and boosts Vitamin B, magnesium and iron levels. Its subtle, nutty flavour and twice the level of protein and fibre of regular wheat make it a high-on-taste bonafide superfood.

Provenance

Known as an ancestor of modern wheat, Khapli Gahu is said to date back 10,000 years. Having been around that long, it has been a staple in some of the world's greatest civilisations, including Indus Valley and Egypt. Its hardiness lends itself to growth in hot and arid areas. Maharashtra is a leader in Khapli cultivation, growing it as a drought and stress-resistant plant blessed with nature’s bounty.

About The Seller

Mi Kasarekar Sendriya Utpadak Shetkari Gat Kasare gets its name from the village it is based in, Kasare in the Dhule district. The farmer group is an offshoot of the NGO Mi Kasarekar, which is involved in the areas of primary education and organic farming. Rakesh Besale, the former sarpanch of the village is the head of the collective and hosts monthly meetings in which farmers receive regular guidance and have access to information regarding latest trends. Producing speciality items using indigenous methods cultivated by tribals residing near the Maharashtra-Gujarat border, all fifty farmers, including multiple women, have effectively advanced from primary field work to processing and creating end-products. By adhering to strict quality standards and overcoming their own inherent risk-averseness, the group is well on its way to achieving long-term income growth for all its stakeholders.
