Spelt is a fabulous ancient grain that packs a strong nutritional profile including a high value of manganese.  It’s a relative of common wheat and, as such, contains gluten, but many people say they find spelt to be easier to digest than the modern hybridized wheat.

Description

You may already be familiar with our Unifine flours and how the process works to “shatter” the grain rather than “grind” it.  A high-speed rotor hits the grain so hard it literally shatters the grain into tiny pieces. Unlike stone-ground flours where the temperature during grinding can get pretty high, the temperature in our Unifine Mill stays low.  And unlike conventionally flour milling processes that use water, our Unifine Mill doesn’t use anything but the grain itself to make the flour.

But, for our line of Ultra Unifine flours, we take it one step further.  We “sift” the flour to make it “Ultra Unifine”. This sifting process isn’t just putting the flour through a sifter to remove clumps as you might do in your own kitchen.  This sifting process actually removes the very largest particles from the whole grain Unifine Flour. What gets removed? Mostly the sharp-edged bits of bran. The nutritious germ mostly remains.  (This type of sifted flour is called “high extraction flour” in Europe and is becoming quite popular there among bakers.)

With our Ultra Unifine flours you get a high level of whole grain nutrition as well as easy, professional quality results.  Without the sharp-edged particles in the flour, the rising process is undisturbed and the mini-bubbles in rising bread don’t get broken. You’ll get more lift in your loaf and a lighter, fluffier result.  Ultra Unifine flour gives the dough the nutrition of whole grain and the smoothness of white flour.

Ancient grains typically contain more minerals,and have a generally better nutrient profile than modern grains. Over-all, spelt flour is an excellent flour to add to your rotation of healthy flours for diet variety and health.

Our Ultra Unifine White Sifted Spelt Flour is organic and therefore non-GMO, too.

Give it a try in your next batch of bread or rolls.  You’ll find it acts a lot like white wheat flour — but with better taste, texture, and nutrition.

  • Kosher
  • This Unifine flour has had about 12% of the bran and germ removed.
