"Spelt is one of the oldest cereal grains known to man. It is estimated to be over 9,000 years old. The name is derived from its Latin name: Triticum spelta. Before the 20th century, spelt was considered the staff of life in Europe and the United States. Spelt is a good alternative to using wheat flour, which some folks avoid due to allergic reactions.
