NUTRITION INFORMATION (values per 100 g of product):
Available in a pack of 500gr.
"Triticum Durum Dicoccum" spelt variety is the oldest cereal consumed by humanity.
It was the primary source of sustenance for the Asian and Mediterranean populations for many centuries.
It seemingly originated in Palestine, was found in Egyptian tombs and held in high esteem by the Romans, who used it as a ritual offering at weddings.
The word "farina" (Italian for "flour") derives from the root "far", the Latin word for spelt.
Over the centuries, the cultivation of spelt has declined, superceded by that of common and durum wheat, which have higher yields and lower processing costs.
In more recent times, spelt is being grown with organic agricultural methods far from the intensive farming typical of the more common cereals.
Despite the high costs of production, the rediscovery and success of spelt is due to its higher protein content compared to other grains and, most of all, to greater eco-awareness.
