I use this product regularly, but i would like to know exact variety of spelt used to make this flour.
Is this flour fortified? Which ones of your flours are fortified, and which ones aren't? (The Bread and Flour Regulations 1998)
Hi Chris. No, this flour is not fortified - none of our wholemeal flours are - wholemeal flours are exempt from UK mandatory fortification. Only our Plain white, Self Raising White and Strong White flours are fortified.
Hi there - just wondering whether this product is made of sprouted spelt flour? Or just spelt flour? Apologies if I'm asking this in ignorance. I'm not very familiar with the bread making process.
Hi, the answer is no as it is milled from un-sprouted grain. Many thanks, Doves Farm
I am new to Spelt and was rather surprised by it's sweetness but it made delicious bread and my daughter now wants nothing else, I prefer a more savoury taste but shall definitely buy more Spelt as I imagine it is just perfect for baking cookies and cakes (and loaves for my daughter)
Would love to order from your spelt flower range. I am I iPad, your site lets me choose, place in basket, BUT DOES NOT ANYWHERE LET ME GET TO CHECK OUT, SO I CANT BUY. Tony Doano
I have used this flour to make bread, pita bread and pasta. All have been excellent, light, tasty and easily digested. I wish I had found Spelt flour years ago!!
This makes excellent bread but for anyone who is allergic to wheat protein, this flour has been milled on equipment that has dealt with wheat. It is therefore contaminated with wheat and can cause symptoms.
Thank you for your comment. You are quite right to note this flour is milled using equipment which mills other wheat and gluten containing grains. However, it is not contaminated with wheat, it is a variety of wheat itself. Therefore anyone with gluten allergies should not use this flour, and some wheat intolerances may still react to this flour. ~ Doves Farm
Love the Wholegrain Spelt flour, even my son who refuses to eat 'brown bread' loves this as bread. Have yet to use in other recipes, but when the bread is this good..!
I seem to have converted my whole family to spelt flour. I use it in my favourite wholemeal honey cake, to make gorgeous chocolate chip cookies and when I have to time, bread! It's a really good all rounder when I've replaced any standard recipe with doves farm spelt. Fully recommended!
I have made Roman bread many times and in large quantities, its is delicious, keeps very well and works in many other dishes, Spelt, cheese and honey balls are particularly good.
