SPELT FOR EVERYONE
While spelt (Triticum Spelta) can be substituted for everything we use modern wheat for, it has a higher protein content. Protein is essential for body maintenance and muscle growth and this makes it a perfect source of protein for vegetarians, vegans and growing children. It provides a well balanced source of protein because it contains all eight essential amino acids.
Spelt has a Glycemic Index of 30, which is low and a huge health benefit. This kind of food produces only small fluctuations in our blood sugar levels, and reduces the risk of heart disease and diabetes. It is a key to long term health and assists sustainable weight loss as you feel fuller for longer.
Spelt contains special carbohydrates (Mucopolysaccharides) which are an important factor in blood clotting and stimulating the body's immune system. It is also an excellent source of fibre with large amounts of B complex vitamins, to help keep the gut in good working order.
Due to spelt's high water solubility, the grain's vital substances can be absorbed quickly into the body. The nutrients are made available to the entire organism with a minimum of digestive work. By substituting spelt for common wheat you are immediately making a positive health choice in your life, and many people prefer the taste of spelt.
