Spelt, also known as Dinkel wheat or hulled wheat, is a species of wheat that has been cultivated since approximately 5,000 BC.

Spelt was an important staple food in parts of Europe from the Bronze Age to medieval times. Now it survives as a relict crop in Central Europe and northern Spain, and it has found a new market as a health food.

Spelt is believed to have originated in the Near East over 8,000 years ago, eventually making its way into Europe, particularly Germany.

Spelt is a whole grain related to wheat, but performs very differently when used for baking.

The mildly-nutty tasting spelt berry is considered an “ancient” grain and is even referenced in the Bible.

This ancient title means the berry has not been hybridized like our common modern-day whole wheat.

Spelt has a lower gluten content than today’s wheat, making it easier to digest.

People with minor gluten sensitives can often consume spelt without the issues associated with whole wheat, however, spelt is not gluten-free and should not be used by those with celiac disease or a severe gluten intolerance.
