Spelt is an ancestor of the current wheat and it offers in three main varieties: Triticum Dicoccum and spelt, Triticum Monococcum, plus another under less common varieties. While the Dicoccum spelt wheat, is very similar to the Salem and Monococcum resemble to wheat instead. Spelt, wheat, is much less than the productive and is gathered still covered with a cuticle, which must be removed to allow consumption.
Low productivity combined with the process of gall, determines a price 10 times higher than that of wheat.

Magnesium, present high extent, facilitates the use of insulin and improves muscle contractile activity, thereby avoiding the appearance of cramps (very useful for athletes).
