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.
