Spelt is an ancient wheat and can be eaten by some people who find wheat hard to digest. The grains are of bread making quality, suitable for home milling. Spelt grain becomes quite creamy when stirred so it can be used to make risotto in the same way that pearl barley can, although it isn’t as starchy. Our Spelt is not pearled so it will need a longer cooking time. The Spelt grain offers a tasty alternative to rice or other grains as well as being full of fiber, protein, zinc and B vitamins.
STORAGE: Please store all grains and flour cool, away from heat and sunlight. Once opened keep the bags tightly folded up.
NB Our grain goes through a rigorous cleaning process, however we cannot guarantee that there will not be tiny traces of other seeds which are natural in the organic farming process. Spelt also is a covered grain, meaning it is in a husk and is removed by de-hulling. Occasionally tiny parts of the husk can be found in the Spelt grain as they are extremely difficult to remove.
