Organic Spelt Grain

Spelt (Triticum spelta; Triticum dicoccum) is a species of wheat cultivated since 5000 BC. Spelt was an important staple in parts of Europe from the Bronze Age to medieval times. Sometimes called Dinkel wheat.

Spelt contains -

  • 62% carbohydrates
  • 8.8% fibre
  • 2.7% fat
  • 12% protein
  • Spelt is rich in silicate, which has a positive effect on concentration and mental power and also on the health of your skin and hair.
  • Spelt contains more minerals and vitamins than the best wheat.
  • Perfect for baking or sprouting.

Store in a cool, dry place with good air circulation

Don't forget - we also stock Grain Mills!

Spelt from growing to milling

Spelt is protected from the elements by a hull which is firmly attached to the grain. The removal of this hull prior to milling is expensive, requires special machinery and gives us a 40% lower yield. This is the reason why spelt is more expensive and why it was nearly forgotten. However the unique nutritional quality and baking quality has made for a huge comeback of spelt and today many people prefer spelt to wheat.
