Three einkorn and two emmer genotypes were analysed for concentration of microelements (Fe, Zn and Se) and lipid soluble antioxidants (α-tocopherol, α-tocotrienol and β-carotene). A diversity was observed in micronutrient content, but most of the genotypes have significantly higher trace element and antioxidant contents than the control wheat variety. The emmer genotypes contain lower Fe and β-carotene concentration than einkorn
genotypes. The einkorn genotypes have significant higher antioxidant content than the wheat control. On average einkorn has more than three times more β-carotene than the wheat variety. Our results are useful for species/variety choice in functional food production not only for organic but also for conventional farmers, who have/want to operate under low input conditions, especially in Central Europe.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Neglected species, such as einkorn and emmer are worthy of growing in low input fields as they can be used for the production of high-value functional food.
What problem does the tool address?:Low diversity of cereal species in the fields. Knowledge on neglected cereal species has to be increased to overcome this problem.
What solution does the tool offer?:Specific quality traits of einkorn and emmer varieties were examined to support the spread of these species, especially among organic farmers.
Type of Practice Tool:Other type of tool
Other Type:scientific proceeding
