Malty, sweet flavor!

Bluebird Spelt flour can be used in any recipe that calls for whole wheat flour. Spelt adds a malty, sweet flavor and a light texture to your baked goods. Spelt can generally be substituted for 50% of the wheat flour in a recipe, though if you have not used it before, you may want to start out by substituting 25% Spelt flour and working your way up as you become more familiar with it. It’s especially good for use in breads, and dense baked goods such as cookies and muffins. No matter how you choose to use it, this ancient grain will add delicious flavor and wholesome nutrition to baked goods.

Add a versatile and healthy ancient grain to your pantry with Bluebird Grain Farm’s freshly milled Spelt flour! Spelt is the most common and versatile of the ancient wheats. Because it is related to wheat, spelt flour contains gluten, but the gluten proteins in Spelt are more water soluble than those in wheat, making it easier to digest, people with wheat allergies and mild gluten sensitivities claim that ancient wheats are more easy to digest than modern wheats. Its unique genetic structure also makes Spelt flour a great source of protein and essential minerals including manganese, zinc, and copper. Our Spelt flour is high in dietary fiber, we do not remove any of the germ and bran in our milling process.
