Red Fife has been resurrected by a number of faithful organic heritage wheat farmers mostly in Canada. Red Fife seed is being actively preserved and protected as a Heritage/Heirloom variety. Although it is the foundation of many modern hybrid wheat varieties this wheat has itself not undergone the hybridization of modern wheats. It is thought that mass hybridization of modern wheat has changed the protein structure of wheat leading to the increased cases of gluten sensitivity we see today. Heritage/Heirloom/Ancient grains, such as Red Fife, Turkey Red, Einkorn, Emmer and others may be more easily digestible and tolerated by those with gluten sensitivities.
