We have three types of spelt pasta in the shop – lasagne (£2.49/£2.24 with 10% off), spaghetti (£2.19/£1.97) and penne (£1.85/£1.67). This is on offer for Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th February. The lasagne is vegan – others may contain traces of egg.
Spelt is one of the oldest cultivated grains (an ancient cousin of wheat). It is high in fibre, has a higher content of protein and vitamins than wheat and although not gluten free, Spelt can be tolerated by some people with wheat allergies.
Spelt was praised in the 12th century by St. Hildegarde von Bingen as “the best of grains”.
