tasty, toasted spelt, barley & oat flakes

We have just discovered these toasted and malted spelt flakes. They are not only deliciously light, crunchy and nutty, they’re also high in fibre. A 7,000-year-old distant cousin of modern wheat, spelt has a fragile gluten structure that is more water soluble than modern wheat making it easier to digest. Ideal for anyone wishing to eat less wheat. With a delicious blend of dates, sultanas, Chilean flame raisins, juicy pineapple, pumpkin seeds, roasted hazelnuts and almonds. Simple, but then the best things in life usually are.

good to know

:-) Vegetarian Society approved
:-) High in fibre
:-) Contains spelt, a distant cousin of modern wheat
:-) Spelt’s fragile gluten structure makes it more water-soluble

handy to know

:-) In biblical times spelt was regarded as the “Mother Grain”.
:-) Spelt grains have an extra strong shell which helps retain nutrients.
:-) Spelt is no longer commonly used because the yields are lower and the tough shell is more difficult to work with than modern wheat varieties. However, we don’t mind a bit of hard work, and prefer less intensive farming wherever possible – so welcome back, spelt!
