Son of a durum wheat and a barley from Chile and Argentina. Its peculiar name comes from the fusion of the Latin name of its father (Triticum) and its mother (Hordeum).
It is the result of a natural cross -a traditional practice applied since the beginning of agriculture. It is not a GMO. It is registered as a new crop species within the European Union.
Everything starts in the field. Tritordeum is cultivated mainly in Spain and Italy, in both conventional and ecological production systems. We work with local farmers, supporting local economy, and following a philosophy of respect for sustainable principles.
Tritordeum is more sustainable and has a better ecological footprint. It is a robust cereal, adapted to the inclemency of climate change. It stands up well to drought and high temperatures and has good resistance to diseases.
Tritordeum is a totally traceable cereal. The grain, grown by local farmers, passes from the field to a local store and then to the nearest mill. After a traditional milling process, the grain becomes quality flour.
This cereal has a value chain focussed on the control of the origin of the grain. With Tritordeum we know at all times the origin of the grain that went into the flour to make the products that we eat.
Once the grain turns into flour, the magic can be made.
Tritordeum is an innovative cereal that allows you to create all kinds of breads, pastries, confectionary and cooked products.
Many artisans have already introduced it into their menu of healthy products. It is the perfect ally for those who are seeking healthy and sustainable ingredients.
We are every day more aware that we are what we eat.
Tritordeum is a healthy cereal and ideal for combining within a Mediterranean diet.
Tritordeum has more fiber, lutein, and oleic acid than common wheat. Ideal for our eye, intestinal and cardiovascular health. Its gluten is more digestible, (but not suitable for coeliac disease sufferers).
Tritordeum offers a great sensory experience.
Its aroma is pleasant, its flavor is sweet with a light touch of nuts and its attractive golden color (due to lutein) makes it unmistakable.
