Spelt is an ancient variety of wheat that often contains a lower gluten content, and a higher protein than most of today's wheat varieties. While still holding much of the same nutrients, spelt is a great source of iron, magnesium and zinc, and it also holds more of a sweet, nutty flavour than you might expect.
Spelt berries are great when added to rice while cooking it, adding a wonderful flavour and texture contrast to a standard rice bowl (not to mention the added nutrients). Spelt berries are also great to keep on hand for fresh milling as needed. Generally speaking, spelt contains a higher oil content than standard wheat varieties, which means the flour is likely to go rancid sooner unless stored in the fridge or freezer to maintain freshness. Spelt berries kept whole however, are a great storage option if you have the capacity to mill your own flours.
