These whole spelt berries are sweet and nutty in flavor and have a delightfully chewy texture. Though a close relative of modern wheat varieties, people who cannot tolerate wheat can often tolerate spelt. This ancient grain provides more complete nutrition, because it has not been heavily bred for production the way modern wheat strains have. Spelt berries are high in several important B vitamins, including B2, niacin and thiamin. It also contains copper and manganese. Spelt is higher in protein than modern wheat varieties and provides a good source of fiber.
Store in a cool, dry, dark place.

Great quality. Normally when going through beans I have to pick out a bunch but didn't see any discolored or damaged kernels. I don't have any reference for what spelt kernels should taste like, but I thought they were delicious !
