Considered the oldest wheat in the world, consumed in abundance by the legionaries of ancient Rome during their travels, spelled has always been a very important food for human well-being. Although not without contraindications.

Just like common common wheat, spelled also contains gluten and therefore it is certainly not indicated in the daily diet of those suffering from celiac disease or intolerances. On the contrary, people allergic to wheat proteins can instead tolerate those contained in spelled, much more digestible. In the case of chronic colitis, however, it is better to avoid: spelled, even considered sacred for ancient Italic peoples such as Latini, Umbri and Sabini, contains high quantities fibers from which also subjects with particular intestinal or digestive problems should keep away.

With the arrival of soft and hard wheat, over the centuries, spelled plantations in the old continent have greatly reduced and today it is a product of the earth linked above all to concepts of organic agriculture and the enhancement of areas rural border.

The important fiber content, on the other hand, represents a negative aspect in some ways, but certainly positive for others. Its laxative property can in fact be read favorably by those with constipation problems, while another point in its favor to never do without it is the contribution low calorie spelled, roughly equal to 340 kilocalories per 100 grams.

Right combinations

To make it more palatable at the table and to encourage the assimilation of its proteins, many people consume spelled accompanying it with legumes.
