Spelt is one of the first and most important cereals used by Mediterranean civilization.
It was known to the Egyptians who considered it as a very valuable food because some seeds were found in the tombs of pharaohs. The Romans used it as a staple food for their legions, in religious ceremonies and as a gift to the gods.
During the Middle Ages spelt use was abandoned in favor of wheat, only to be rediscovered thanks to its organoleptic properties and the high percentage of protein and minerals. Furthermore, its high fiber content regulates bowel functions.
