Spelt is a nutritious and flavorful relative of common wheat. An ancient grain, it is unusual because it retains nearly all of its nutritional value in the kernel, therefore, even after processing, it contains high levels of proteins and carbohydrates. Good source of dietary fiber, thiamin, niacin, iron and potassium. Easy to digest. Contains gluten, but is tolerated by many wheat sensitive people. Spelt has a delicious, light and nutty flavor. Easily substituted for wheat in recipes.|

Why go organic? Organic foods are grown without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. Organic foods are not genetically modified. Organic foods are grown in soil that is nurtured, not treated... which means top soil, groundwater, rivers, lakes, streams, watersheds, fish & wildlife, and people are not compromised. Healthy food grows in healthy soil. You can often taste the organic difference!
