Get to know your grains! SPELT

Spelt is a low gluten, high fiber, ancient wheat grain.  It contains more nutrients compared to many of its more inbred cousins in the wheat family.   Add spelt berries to morning oatmeal and reap the benefits of an excellent source of vitamin B2, a very good source of manganse, and a good source of niacin, thiamin, and copper.  Spelt can also be ground and used in bakery items.
