History
Spelt (Dinkel) dates back 3000 years BC in the region known today as Baden Württemberg. It has a long standing tradition here as an important and healthy grain used in both beer and bread making. However, due to its low yield, spelt production was cut back during World War I and II and replaced with a high yielding grain to feed the hungry population. In recent times, spelt is making a comeback due to its healthliness.
