Resources for Cooking with Kernza®
Kernza® grain has gluten, but it is not as strong as the gluten in wheat flour.
Retailers are key to getting Kernza® products into the hands of consumers. If you are interested in putting Kernza® products on your shelves, connect with a licensed Kernza® Maker on our network page or contact us for more information.

Purchase a Sample
Product makers often need a small amount of Kernza® to experiment with. If you would like to purchase Kernza® for experimentation, please reach out to one of the licensed Kernza® distributors.
What are the challenges to scaling production?
With very few acres of Kernza® grain planted for production, demand for the grain has consistently outpaced supply. With the help of growers, handlers, and researchers, we are working to close that gap and help you bring new, exciting products to market.
