Spelt (Dinkel wheat)
Triticumaestivum sub.spelta

Considered a sub-species of wheat, or a separate species of the same type. It is characterised by its high protein content, up to 17%.
Spelt shoots are sweet because their enzymes break down the starch, reserved as sugars, in the embryonic plant.
They contain 70% glucose. They are rich in minerals (calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, etc.) They also provide a large dose of vitamins B, C & E. There are gastronomic movements that state that eating this type of cereal is better for human health than consuming ordinary wheat.
