Naturally high in soluble and insoluble fibre Anita’s Organic Spelt is also a rich source of B complex vitamins. Spelt is also rich in iron, magnesium, niacin, thiamin, phosphorus, amino acids, essential fatty acids, and both simple and complex carbohydrates. An ancient non-hybrid grain, spelt contains a form of gluten that is water-soluble (it has a different chemistry than gluten found in wheat and most other gluten-containing grains), and this simple gluten structure can often be tolerated by those sensitive to wheat.
