Khak Shir is the smallest grain in the world. It is used as an ingredient in Middle Eastern drinks.
Descurainia sophia is a member of the family Brassicaceae. Common names include flixweed herb-Sophia and tansy mustard. It reproduces by seeds. It is a dominant weed in dark brown prairie and black prairie soils of southern Alberta.
In Iran the seeds are called khak-e shir (khakshir) and khak-e shir drinks are traditionally favored as thirst quencher during hot summer days. Khakshir is also considered a medicinal substance in traditional Iranian medicine consumed in varying combinations with other herbs and substances to gain effects ranging from antidiuretic to aphrodisiac.
