First used by the Greeks, spelt is a species of ancient wheat cultivated in Central Europe and the Middle East since 5,000 BC. With a strong nutritional profile, it is known to be an excellent source of protein, fiber, B vitamins and minerals such as manganese, phosphorous and niacin. It contains a moderate amount of gluten which makes it suitable for baking, but not suitable for those with gluten intolerance disorders. It also has a more soluble protein structure than flour made from hard red winter wheat. Spelt flour is easy to substitute for regular wheat flour in any recipe. It is a one to one substitute and can be used to make biscuits, crackers, pretzels, bread, pasta and cookies. If baking with spelt flour, it is important to not overmix as the gluten breaks down very easily. If overmixed, it will make for an end product with a very crumbly texture.
