WHAT IS SPELT?
Spelt (Triticum Spelta) is not wheat (Triticum Aestivum) but closely resembles wheat agronomically. Spelt is among the first grains known to man and is mentioned in the Old Testament in Exodus 9:31-32 and Ezekiel 4:9. Research has proven that spelt was grown in Europe over 9,000 years ago. Spelt has been grown in North America for hundreds of years. History tells us that spelt was first brought to eastern Ohio by Swiss immigrants. Although spelt was grown across essentially the entire United States at one time, it was nearly abandoned in favor of modern wheat varieties. In the mid 1960's spelt came to the forefront once again as cattle and dairy producers, and horse owners searched for alternative feed for their animals. In recent years spelt has gained the attention of the food industry for milling purposes.
