Spelt – A Vegan Pantry Ingredient from Vegan Venue
Spelt or spelt berries are an ancient whole grain that we have in our vegan pantry, which we grind into flour and bake into several kinds of bread and rolls.
Spelt is another of the ancient grains mentioned in the Bible. It is recorded in Exodus 9:32 as one of the grains grown in Egypt. Isaiah wrote about spelt in his book (28:25), and spelt was one of the ingredients in Ezekiel’s bread (Ezekiel 4:9). A 2 oz. (56.7 grams) dry serving of spelt contains 216 calories, consisting of 1.67 grams of fat (15 calories), 42.25 grams of complex carbohydrate (169 calories), and 8.1 grams of protein (32 calories). We could not find detailed nutritional information for whole grain spelt.
