Shipton Mill Organic Spelt Wholemeal Flour.
An ancient grain, spelt is closely related to Emmer. It was first cultivated near Jericho on the modern day West Bank between 10,200 and 8,800 BC. By Roman times, spelt's popularity stretched across Europe and the flour was prized for its unique nutritional and baking qualities. Today, spelt grain is still found growing in the remote mountainous regions of Europe.
Attributed with many dietary benefits, spelt may be of interest to some people who have wheat allergies. Like wheat, spelt contains gluten and so produces good bread which people prize for its flavour and its natural richness of minerals.
Ideal for use as a general purpose bread flour.
