Sharpham Park Spelt Muesli Date & Coconut 450g
What is Spelt? Spelt is an ancient grain that has been grown in Somerset since the start of the Iron Age. It is a cross between Emmer Wheat and Goat Grass with a unique gluten structure which makes it easier to digest than modern wheat. It has a delicious nutty taste and is nutritious too. Its tough husk protects it from pests and diseases. It's high in protein and fibre and it's a good source of slow release energy. So much so, that the Roman Army called it, their 'marching grain'. Our organic farm set in the heart of the Somerset Levels is sustainably managed. The spelt fields have 4 metre margins and the hedgerows are cut every other year allowing wildlife such as hare, lapwing, dormice, bees and ladybirds to shelter and forage for food all year round.
