Whole Grain Spelt Flour
Whole Grain Spelt Flour
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.

Just getting into Spelt flour. Have purchased both whole grain and sifted. Tried them in “spelt” recipes and now use them in my regular recipes as well. Highly recommend. I need more sifted!!!
I love your flour it makes an amazing sourdough bread and other baked goods
This recipe is amazing. I made it yesterday and put the mixture is muffin papers as I was taking them to a pot luck. Huge success. Unbelievably delicious. I have not yet used the flour I ordered but I am looking forward to making many loaves of bread.
First time using the spelt flour. It's awesome, just like all the others you sell. I will definitely buy it again.
