Like the pharaoh of Egypt, this supreme grain leads the wheat family in taste and nutrients. A 1/4 cup of uncooked farro contains 6 g of protein (the same as a serving of beans or legumes), 3g of fiber, and only 1g of fat. It’s high in both iron and calcium, as well as nearly the whole alphabet of vitamins: vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, and B vitamins.
