What is it?
Spelt, also called Dinkel (triticum spelta), is an ancient grain related to wheat. It was previously widely grown in Europe but due to its low yield and difficult growing characteristics it has mostly been replaced by modern wheat.
This is an excellent, high quality Spelt/Dinkel which will not only make a beautiful loaf of bread but can also be used for the full range of baking. Biodynamically grown here in beautiful New Zealand on one of NZ's first certified organic farms.
What are the nutritional benefits?
