    What is spelled? Eat spelled healthily


    Spelled (Triticum spelta) is a grain less known and much older than its modern cousin, wheat (Triticum aestivum). The spelled is estimated to be more than 7000 years old 

    However, in the nineteenth century, after the rapid evolution of modern agricultural techniques, it stopped cultivating, as it turned out to be an unprofitable cereal for farmers, due to its high production cost 

    The spelled nowadays it is recovering and it is being strengthened a lot from good nutrition and healthy diets


    1. Spelled has a nutritional value much higher than wheat 

    • Spelled has not undergone as many genetic modifications as wheat
    • The spelled keeps many qualities due to its null genetic alteration, one of them is its easy digestion and its anti-inflammatory power.
    • The percentage of proteins is 15% but it is not the percentage that defines it, it is the amount of amino acids it has, in total it has 8 amino acids that make spelled a product with proteins of high biological quality.
    • The fiber of the spelled is an ideal fiber for diabetic and ideal against constipation, currently Used a lot for high level athletes and especially for low calorie diets. These diets are recommended because of the mineral content of the product, since iron and zinc stand out as sources of energy.
    • Spelled contains vitamins B, E and A

    2. Spelled is more digestive than another type of cereal 

    Spelled has gluten so it is not recommended for celiac although the volume of gluten is negligible. 

    • Spelled gluten has a different molecular composition than modern wheat gluten, being more fragile and soluble in water. However, wheat gluten does not break down in water, and when it works it becomes stronger. Spelled gluten, which is more fragile, breaks easily into pieces during chewing and the mixing action, allowing enzymes and acids secreted during the digestive process to work more easily.
    • Modern wheat was modified to eliminate the outer shell, thereby achieving a much faster and more productive harvest by farmers. By not having this shell, modern wheat developed inhibitors of the enzyme to fight against pests. These enzyme inhibitors further delay the activity of the enzyme that is needed for complete digestion.
    • Spelled, with a hard outer shell, does not need inhibitors of the enzyme, so its digestion is easier.
    • Spelled has more fiber content than wheat, which results in a better digestion of gluten.

    3. The spelled is proof of low temperatures 

    Due to the characteristics of the spelled, the cultivation of this cereal does not need any type pesticide as it holds very well pests, diseases and even herbicides , this product can be planted in any field, since it is a product that does not need large amount of fertilizer to grow. This product has been highly valued in the mountainous areas of Spain, since it resists cold winters very well, especially in Teruel, where temperatures tend to be below zero on most winter nights.
