Hey folks @cryptokraze here with my new Blog about Food and Health awareness in which I will highlight the health benefits associated with Farro. We should add variety of foods in our diet because they have bio-active components in them that help in preventing many diseases and provide other health benefits.

Health Benefits of Farro

Health benefits associated with a farro are as under:

Aids Digestion

Farro fiber content is very high, so it has good heart health, good for digestion, and helps prevent blood sugar or insulin spikes and dips. The 1/2 cup of Farro contains about seven to eight grams of cholesterol-reducing fiber, which is more than four times that of white rice or a piece of white bread.

Good Source of Protein

In addition to fiber, many people are surprised to find that ancient grains like farro are also excellent protein foods. In fact, farro is considered an excellent source of vegetable protein, which is almost the same as most legumes and even exceeds many other whole grains.

High in B Vitamins

Faro contains a variety of B vitamins, particularly niacin vitamin B3, which is important for metabolic health and breaks down or transforms carbohydrates, fats and proteins in foods into energy. B vitamins are also important for brain health, maintaining high levels of energy, neurotransmitter function, and central nervous system support. Vitamin B2, another vitamin B found in farro, is essential for the development, reproduction and conversion of carbohydrates in whole grains.

Source of Micronutrients

Farro is a good source of nutrients and some consumers of vegetables or one of the main processed diets may be missing, including magnesium, zinc and iron. Iron is very important to prevent anemia and help increase energy, and zinc is essential for brain function, helps in growth and promotes the function of DNA and cells.

Full Stomach

All grains can bring satiety, including farro. Therefore, it is a good choice for dietary meals. This will help to feel full in the stomach for hours, but with the lowest calories.

I had farro breakfast cereal, and it was good. My children ate it which is big for me!! I will try this way next time. Thanks for sharing @cryptokraze


You are doing good in adding cereals to breakfasts. It will help your children in long run.

No I've never tried it by natures earthly choice and I will be trying it for the first time. As I am not familiar with it. But I'm going to give this a try based on your thoughtful description of its importance to our health, super genius post!! Thanks for your thoughtful post @cryptokraze.

Looks really good

Filling the stomach and with the lowest calories is perhaps one of the greatest benefits of eating Farro. Great health tips, thanks!

Thank you for this informative post. We dont get farro in South Africa though. I think our closest food item would be lentils. Remember that if you are on a carb free diet to lose weight, you can deduct the fibre content of the farro when calculating your total carb intake - that is if you are working on a certain carb gram intake per day. I have upvoted you and will be following. I hope I'm not intruding but I think your readers might be interested in reading my post where I offer free nutritional and detox advice for the next week. I am a qualified nutritional therapist and detox specialist based in South Africa.

Interesting! Farro seems like an excellent substitute for oatmeal, I'm going to give it a try!

This is horrible information again. Do you have any research to back this up? All grains are full of anti nutrients and do more harm than good. The only thing we can extract from grains is sugar.

Sabes que otro nombre se le da a ese cereal? porque me parece muy interesantes sus beneficios pero por FARRO no lo conozco. Gracias
