Emmer (Triticum dicoccum)

Emmer which is also an ancient hulled wheat, is among the early cereals that were domesticated in the Fertile Crescent region. Emmer wheat possesses valuable traits of resistance to pests and diseases and tolerance to abiotic stresses and is increasingly used as a reservoir of useful genes in wheat breeding. In some parts of the world, certain traditional foods prepared with dicoccum wheat are preferred due to their better taste, texture, and flavour. It is rich in bioactive compounds, furthermore its starch has been reported to have slow digestibility (Dhanavath et al, 2017)
