Find Kernza in Cereals and Snacks

Earlier this month General Mills announced they’re working with The Land Institute to incorporate perennial food grain Kernza into cereals and snacks under its Cascadian Farm organic brand.  Read the article from the Washington Post.

In the article, Kernza is described to be “sweet and nutty-tasting”. Last week a Michigan farmer baked us some scones using whole Kernza flour, and we second that statement- sweet and nutty with a beautiful, toasted brown color. Its fun to wonder what other food products we might find Kernza apart of in the coming months and years!

I work with farmers and researchers to bring together science and application of perennial grains, especially Kernza, also known as intermediate wheat grass. Share your information and we can post on this site.
