Spelt is a non-hybrid primitive relative of our present day wheat that dates back more than 9,000 years. Spelt has a unique nutty flavor and because of its high water solubility, its vital nutrients are quickly absorbed into the body. Bob's Red Mill Stone Ground Organic Spelt Flour can be used in most recipes calling for wheat flour - especially yeast and quick breads.
Diets rich in whole grain foods and other plant foods low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers.
