Spelt has been cultivated for over 9000 years. This ancient grain is part of the wheat family but has certain properties that makes it behave quite differently from modern strains of wheat. Spelt is a great source of protein and tends to have lower amounts of gluten than most species of wheat. In fact some people with wheat allergies find that they can tolerate spelt!
We stock a wide selection of spelt products - there is something for everyone! We stock wholegrain, flours, puffs, flakes and crispbreads! Here are seven spelt recipes to inspire you to eat more of this tasty grain!
Toffee-like, crunchy spelt bars made with red berries, coconut sugar, cashews and homemade white chocolate. These tasty treats are dairy-free and low GI in comparison to many sugar-full flapjacks/oat bars available in supermarkets.
This frangipane tart has a moist filling made using almond flour and almond butter, together with a spelt pastry base and Amaretto-soaked peaches. The filling has a melty, chocolate-like texture due to the softness of the almond mix.
Pearled Spelt is an easy-to-cook alternative to Risotto Rice. We found that it lent itself well to this type of dish as it became tender, but didn't become too gloopy or sloppy like some rice can. Porcini mushrooms are a MUST for this dish. They enrich the dish with their amazing flavour!
