Flourist Whole Grain Spelt Flour is milled from organically grown Spelt Spring wheat from Assiniboia, Saskatchewan. This flour contains 100% of the original grain, and is rich in fibre and flavour. Use it in cookies, breads and any recipe that calls for whole wheat flour. You can also supplement sifted flours to add a whole grain flavour and nutrition boost.
Spelt is an ancient grain that was popular in Europe for centuries, especially in Germany, where it has been grown since 4,000 BCE and was by far the dominant wheat variety until the end of the 19th century.
As modern farming techniques arose in the 20th century, Spelt farming fell out of common practice around the world. This is because Spelt grains have a hard outer shell that must be removed before milling or cooking. But a renewed interest in ancient grains and their nutritional value has once again made it economical for farmers to plant Spelt.
Long prized for its very high protein content, Spelt lends a nutty aroma and flavour and soft, airy feel to breads and other baked goods.
Our hand-crafted Austrian stone mill slowly and gently crushes grain at a low temperature, a process that produces beautiful, aromatic, nutritious and delicious flour. The product bears little resemblance to the typical, highly processed shelf stable flour found on grocery store shelves. You’ll notice the difference right away: the colour is natural and the aroma is unmistakable.
We recommend storing our fresh flours in the fridge or freezer to maintain freshness.

We’ve been buying flourist spelt flour for over a year now. It’s my go to flour for all of our baked goods. We use the whole grain spelt flour in waffles, pancakes, muffins and bread. It’s the best!
My sourdough breads have explosive oven spring, crispy, dark crusts and excellent crumb when I bake with your spelt flour. My experience with your other flours has been positive also and your shipping speed is amazing, especially since we live in a very remote area!
