Organic Spelt Flour Wholemeal
Spelt is a species of wheat arising from natural hybridisation which has taken place centuries ago. It is one of the original seven grains mentioned in the bible and continues to be popular today for its impressive nutritional value. Spelt has high water solubility, therefore its nutrients are easily absorbed by the body. Wholemeal spelt flour is made from whole grain without the bran and germ removed. This organic wholemeal spelt flour has had no chemical bleaching, no alcohol treatment, no additives, no anti-bacterial, no anti-fungal agents and no bromate added.
Spelt flour should be used where a ‘lighter’ touch is preferred such as in pastries, biscuits and cakes. It is also suitable for sauces, batters and ‘dusting’, and can be used to make delicious, light pasta and pizza bases from scratch. It can act as an all-purpose flour replacing wheat or grain flour in any recipe to provide a slightly sweet and nutty flavour. Spelt flour requires a little less liquid than wheat flour so make sure to note this down when using spelt flour in the kitchen. As spelt flour is a plain flour rather than a self-raising flour, it will be necessary to include a raising agent when cooking with it, such as yeast or baking powder.
