Anna Scroggins, RD, Food Development Technologist at Hodgson Mill, played a key role in developing the brand new Ancient Grain Medley sides. “We chose each grain for its great nutritional profile, taste and texture. Once we had the right blend, my goal was to match seasonings that naturally complemented their flavor. I hope these familiar, delicious flavors tempts people to try ancient grains like KAMUT wheat, Sorghum, or Teff for the first time.” 

President Bob Goldstein explains, “These side dishes will help people discover some new, delicious grains, and find that they’re an easy and enjoyable way to add wholesome whole grains into their family’s diet. The response so far has been great.”

KAMUT® Khorasan wheat is a protein-packed ancient form of wheat with a rich buttery flavor; some people find it more digestible than modern wheat. Sorghum is a bright new star on the ancient grain stage – naturally gluten free, drought-resistant and grown widely in the US, and deliciously mild and tender. Teff is the world’s tiniest grain, and it is packed with vitamins and minerals!

The new Ancient Grain Medley sides debut at Expo West (March 2016, Booth #4139).  Hodgson Mill anticipates consumers will see them in stores in Fall 2016. Please contact Hodgson Mill or visit the website to learn more. ( Comments, photos, samples & interviews available.
