Arva Mills, White Spelt Flour - 5.5lb
Arva's milling process produces a very unique tasting natural white spelt flour. It is one of their most popular Ontario grown non-wheat grains. Spelt is the most ancient of wheat type grains, originating in the Middle East over 9000 years ago.
It is one of the original seven grains mentioned in the Bible Spelt has gained popularity as a dietary grain due to it's nutty flavor and high protein and nutrition content.
Not to be confused with oats or wheat, spelt is a member of the same grain family but is an entirely different species. Some people who are allergic to wheat, may be able to tolerate some spelt or a lot of spelt but it does contain gluten and cannot be tolerated in a celiac diet. Spelt is highly soluble in water so it's nutrients are easily absorbed by the body.
Although considered a small player in the milling business, Arva has been continuously operating for 193 YEARS, producing their very unique flours, using their antique Goldie & McCullough cold roller mills that have been running since 1904.
Arva flours are all natural, with no preservative or chemicals added.
