Spelt is an ancient variety of wheat with its roots in the Fertile Crescent some 9000 years ago. It is more widely used in Europe where it’s known as dinkel in Germany and farro grande in Italy. While higher in protein than commonly used wheat varieties, the nature of its proteins results in less gluten formation when making bread dough. Many people with wheat allergies or sensitivities can enjoy bread made with spelt flour.

Spelt is renowned for its health benefits but also delivers a mellow nutty flavor. Use in place of ordinary wheat for breads and pasta.  

Our grain is grown by certified organic farms that are committed to ideals of sustainable stewardship of our natural resources for those of future generations. 

  • Rich in Nutrients: Organic Spelt Berries are a powerhouse of nutrition, offering a wealth of vitamins and minerals vital for health. They are particularly high in magnesium, iron, phosphorus, and B vitamins, including niacin, which supports energy metabolism and nervous system health. This makes spelt berries an excellent choice for those looking to boost their nutrient intake in a natural way.
  • High in Dietary Fiber: With a high fiber content, organic spelt berries promote a healthy digestive system, helping to prevent constipation and maintain a healthy gut microbiome. The fiber in spelt berries also contributes to a feeling of fullness, which can aid in weight management by reducing the likelihood of overeating.
  • Ancient Grain with Modern Benefits: Spelt is an ancient grain, meaning it has been cultivated in much the same form for thousands of years. This heritage is reflected in its nutty flavor and hearty texture, making it a versatile ingredient in a variety of dishes. Moreover, its ancient grain status means it is often more digestible for those with sensitivities to modern wheat varieties, though it does contain gluten.
  • Antioxidant Properties: Organic spelt berries are rich in antioxidants, including polyphenols, which help combat oxidative stress and reduce the risk of chronic diseases. These antioxidants support overall health and can contribute to better heart health, stronger immune function, and reduced inflammation.
  • Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly: Choosing organic spelt berries supports sustainable farming practices that are better for the environment. Organic farming reduces the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, promotes biodiversity, and helps maintain soil health. By opting for organic spelt, consumers can enjoy its nutritional benefits while also contributing to a healthier planet.
