ANCIENT SIKAN GRAINS ARE ALLIES OF HEALTH

Cereal of ancient origins, wheat is the basis of our diet.

Often the products we find on the shelves of the shops are made with very refined modern wheat varieties, and this applies as much to pasta as to the beloved bakery products, which are an important part of our culinary tradition.

 

So how is it possible to reconcile good nutrition with the choice of healthy products?

One solution is to rediscover the use of ancient grains and cereals in the kitchen.

For this reason, we at Sikan have decided to invest in the tradition of the cultivation of ancient Sicilian grains, with the sole objective of guaranteeing you a quality that makes you discover the authentic taste of tradition and healthy eating.

The ancient Sicilian grains that we grow and use to make our flours and other bakery products are foods with valuable nutritional properties and are perfectly integrated into a healthy and balanced diet. In fact, the Great Ancient Sikan are characterized by some properties that make them highly recommended:

contain proteins and vitamins,
are rich in magnesium and potassium,
they are full of fiber and antioxidants.

These properties make the daily dietary use of Sicilian Ancient Grains a valid physiological support to the immune system, also ensuring the proper functioning of intestinal cells (given the presence of fibers).

Ancient grains therefore represent a healthy food and thanks to its properties, a lighter, more assimilable and digestible food, especially for children.

We can therefore say that the introduction into the daily diet of food products based on ancient grains achieves a true physiological treatment of preventive rebalancing of the functioning of the immune system.

Finally, in these modern times of global pollution, from all points of view, healthy and physiological nutrition represents a first step in the protection and preservation of biodiversity and also in respect of our environment.

And if it is true that we can think of living better by following a correct diet and in general a hygiene of daily life, the use of ancient grains becomes an extra element to live well and eat better.
