Organic Spelt Grain 1kg
Sold by: Wholefood Earth
Spelt is an ancient grain widely recognized for its many health benefits.Triticum spelta, the scientific name for spelt, is a hardier and more nutritious cousin to modern wheat (Triticum aestivum). Some taxonomists classify spelt as a parent of wheat.
One of the earliest domesticated grains, spelt hasn't changed since Biblical times. It remains unaffected by concepts such as 'agribusiness', 'cross-breeding,' 'hybridization' and 'genetically modified' - words that have come to dominate our modern food supply. Known for its slightly 'nutty' flavour, spelt has long been popular as a health food in Europe, where it is sometimes known as 'farro' (modern Italy) and 'dinkel' (Germany).
You can substitute spelt flour for modern 'common' wheat flour to make breads, pasta, cookies, crackers, cakes, muffins, cereals, pancakes and waffles. In addition to spelt flour, spelt is also available in its de-hulled, whole grain form (often referred to as spelt berries), which can be prepared and enjoyed like rice. You can also purchase many spelt products such as pasta, crackers and breads ready-made.
It contains a broad spectrum of nutrients, including complex carbohydrates, sugar, soluble and insoluble fibre, sodium, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, amino acids and more. Spelt is high in vitamin B2, niacin, manganese, thiamin, copper, and magnesium. Because spelt is highly water soluble, these nutrients are easily absorbed by the body. In addition to being loaded with essential nutrients, Spelt is a good source of dietary fibre, which has been shown to lower total and LDL cholesterol levels. And it tastes great, too!
People with specific health problems, ranging from allergies, cardiovascular disease, IBS, diabetes, arthritis, migraines, atherosclerosis, high cholesterol, to autoimmune disorders will benefit from eating spelt. As always, consult your doctor if you have concerns about allergies or celiac disease.
