According to John T Hoagland of Purity Foods, spelt has a nutty flavor, is naturally high in fiber, B-vitamins, and both simple and complex carbohydrates. He believes that wheat replaced spelt because it is now easier (less expensive) to harvest. Hoadland says, ” Also, unlike other grains, spelt’s husk protects it from pollutants and insects and usually allows growers to avoid using pesticides.”
