What is Spelt?
Spelt is a grain in the wheat family that has been in cultivation for thousands of years. Some debate has occurred over its classification, with some botanists considering it a subspecies of common wheat and others saying that it is an entirely different species. Spelt fell out of popularity among grain cultivators due to the hardness of its outer shell, but with the advent of the health foods movement in the 1980s, it began to enter the popular diet again.
