Spelt pasta is a high-fiber, high-protein option that’s free of wheat. But that doesn’t mean it’s free of gluten. For that reason, it’s not suitable for people with celiac disease.
Spelt is one of the oldest cultivated crops in human history and is believed to have first been used between 7,000 and 8,000 years ago. Spelt is an “ancient grain,” meaning it has been around for thousands of years and changed very little, if at all, during that time.
The health benefits of spelt include its ability to help in regulating the body’s metabolism, increase circulation, build strong bones, improve the immune system, boost the digestive function, lowering blood sugar, and reducing cholesterol levels in the body. The high levels of iron and copper in spelt combine to significantly boost blood circulation.
