Spelt is a delicious, ancient grain introduced from the Middle East about 9,000 years ago. Spelt pre dates the oldest bread baking wheat by approximately 2,000 years. It has a distinctive nutty flavor and unlike common wheat, spelt has remained unchanged over the years. Because of this, it has retained its original vitamins and minerals, making it more nutritious than processed wheat.
People often ask the question why spelt? Is there a benefit to the so-called “Super Grain”? Below are some interesting facts about the ancient grain that may answer those questions.
1.) Spelt has not been manipulated or modified to meet manufacturing needs. Modern wheat has changed over the decades to be easily grown and harvested. Modifications have been made to common wheat to increase yield, and raise the gluten content for the production of high volume commercial baked goods.
2.) Spelt is easier to digest than common wheat. The delicate gluten in spelt is water-soluble; it is degraded by heat and easily broken down by a mixing action. In contrast, Wheat gluten has quite the opposite effect, relaxing when exposed to heat and strengthening when mixed. This often causes the “bloated” feeling many may feel after consuming the gluten in common wheat.
3.) Spelt features a host of different nutrients. It is a great source of vitamin B2, manganese, niacin, thiamin, and copper. This combination of nutrition makes spelt a particularly helpful food for persons with migraine headache, atherosclerosis or diabetes. People with a range of health issues: including digestive problems, skin irritations, and arthritis, report that they feel better after eating Spelt based products rather than common wheat.
