Certified organic 100% whole spelt. Sprouted and whole-milled (whole grain) from non-GMO, harvested American Spelt.
Enjoy enhanced nutrition and a deeper, nuttier, and more well-rounded flavor than regular whole spelt flour.
Since Super Sprout™ Sprouted flours absorb more water than other flours, you may need to add 10% more liquid to your recipe and allow your dough to rest for about 5-10 minutes after mixing to let the dough absorb the water.
This product is processed in a facility that also processes wheat. For best results, store in a cool, dry place.

Is Super Sprout™ sprouted whole grain spelt flour just "whole spelt flour"? How can the consumer/baker tell the difference?
You cannot mistake Super Sprout™ sprouted whole grain spelt flour for regular whole spelt flour. Super Sprout™ Spelt has:
-A different look – a uniform creamy color
-A different feel — very soft and silky fine
-A different taste — well rounded, nutty taste
-Better nutrition — micro-nutrients are enhanced and more bioavailable due to the sprouting process
-Better nutrition — products ingest and digest easily due to the sprouting process
-Different performance — performs best at higher hydrations of 85 - 95% and has already accomplished the desired goals of a prefermentation step
-Different baked product – darker crust due to an increase in carmelized sugars
-Different shelf life – products are softer and stay fresh longer, naturally
How do I substitute Super Sprout™ Spelt with other flour?
Use Super Sprout™ Spelt in all your spelt recipes as a substitute for whole spelt flour. Simply substitute with a 1:1 ratio and add approximately 10% more water than your recipe calls for, adjusting based on what type of dough you are making.
