Spelt, an ancient wheat species, has been cultivated since 5,000 BC. Yet, there has been very little breeding of the grain. As such, it has carried with it the wonderful characteristics that make it possible for some wheat intolerant people to eat it. The gluten strength in spelt is much lower than wheat and therefore easier to digest. Spelt is an excellent source of manganese and a good source of niacin, copper, phosphorus, protein, and fibre. Spelt flour can substitute for wheat flour in many recipes, with a few minor adjustments. The starch in spelt is more soluble than wheat and recipes containing spelt flour will frequently require less water.
