What is Spelt/ Dinkel

Spelt (Triticum aestivum var. spelta) is a cereal grain in the wheat family, which has been cultivated for centuries in the northern Hemisphere.

Spelt has a mild, nutty flavour and is very nutritious. Wholegrain spelt flour is rich in vitamin E as well as vitamin B complexes and contains plenty of minerals such as magnesium, calcium, selenium, iron, zinc and manganese. Spelt is naturally high in protein, lower in calories than wheat flour and is also easier to digest than wheat.

Spelt contains gluten but has a different composition of the protein molecules than wheat. Because of this, people that are sensitive to wheat gluten may still be able to enjoy spelt. Try a small amount first. If you have severe allergic reactions to gluten or celiac disease you need to avoid it.

Gluten is made from two simpler proteins, gliadin (dough stretchiness) and glutenin (dough elasticity). Wheat has a balance of these two proteins, spelt has a higher gliadin to glutenin ratio. This makes the gluten more fragile and vigorous kneading and mixing should be avoided when using spelt flour.

Spelt can be used to make any baked goods including bread, cakes, muffins, flatbread, biscuits, waffles, donuts and brownies. It can also be used as an alternative for rice in salads and soups.
