Spelt bran constitutes a valuable contribution to your well balanced nutrition and may be used in many ways.
Due to its mild and nuttily taste and due to its delicate leafs it is especially apt for refinement of cereals, dairy products, soups and vegetables. At the same time it may also be used as baking ingredient for bread and pastries.
Spelt bran contains soluble as well as not-soluble fibrous materials, the so-called fibers.
The fibers of the spelt bran are especially easily degradable.
Studies performed all over the world showed, that a nutrition rich in fibers prevents digestion and constipation, so that less diverticulosis and hemorrhoids occur. Moreover, on their way through the intestinal system the fibers collect substances that might otherwise cause damage, such as potential cancer promoting substances (e.g. bile acid). Cholesterol will also be transported away, which may help to lower the cholesterol level.
Hildegard von Bingen said:
„Spelt is the best grain as it has a warming and greasing effect, as it is of high grade and milder than all other grains. He who eats spelt, builds-up good flesh. Spelt makes good blood, provides good mood and the gift of cheerfulness. In whatever way you prefer to consume spelt – in one way or another – be it as bread or cooked as another dish, spelt is easily digestible"
Please do not forget to drink a sufficient amount with your fiber-rich nutrition (up to 2 liters per day) to prevent constipation.
