Why spelt is so great?

Spelt is a non-hybrid distant relative to present day wheat. Spelt’s uniqueness is derived from its genetic makeup and nutrition profile.

Spelt is by nature a wholefood. Unlike wheat, where vital nutritional bran and germ are usually removed during milling, the vital substances of spelt are found in the inner kernel of the grain.

Today the sales of spelt are skyrocketing as consumers happily rediscover the pleasure of eating spelt and learn about its nutritional benefits and also studies have shown that it can be tolerated by many people who are normally gluten-intolerant even though spelt does contain gluten 

So what’s the benefits?
VERY NUTRITIOUS!!!! and …

  • Easy to digest
  • high in protein 
  • high in B complex vitamins
  • high in both simple and complex carbohydrate


 Spelt has high water solubility, so nutrients are easily absorbed by the body making it easy to digest. It is high in protein (significantly higher than wheat), higher inB complex vitamins, and spelt is high in both simple and complex carbohydrates. These complex carbohydrates are an important factor in blood clotting and stimulating the body’s immune system. Spelt is a suberb fiber resource.
