The spelt grain may be the answer to your prayers if you are having a problem digesting "common" wheat gluten because spelt gluten is easier to digest.
What is Spelt? Spelt is one of the Ancient grains that is related to the more common and modern day wheat grain. And these days, spelt is gaining in popularity over this type of wheat.
The spelt grain is similar in appearance to the modern day wheat grain, but it has a tougher husk which helps to protect its nutrients. Therefore, it doesn't need to be sprayed with as many pesticides. Spelt also has a nutty flavor, is high in protein, and has an impressive nutritional content.
And the spelt gluten appears to be much easier on the body than the modern day wheat gluten because it belongs to Ancient grains and is not part of the modern GMO grains.
Gliadin is one of the main allergenic proteins found in gluten. And studies have shown that gliadin differences do exist between the spelt gluten and the modern day wheat gluten.
Spelt gluten appears to be more digestible than modern day wheat's gluten. Also, some people who are sensitive to common wheat may not have the same reaction to spelt - especially if they prepare or consume soaked and fermented spelt.
Spelt gluten is less offensive and spelt has a high water solubility which allows nutrients to be more easily absorbed by your body.
However, this grain is still not recommended if you have a severe reaction to gluten.
The spelt grain can be found in grocery stores along side the more common wheat grain. And I do think it is less allergenic than modern day wheat and it tastes better to me.
The spelt grain also belongs to the Ancient grains, so it's more nutritious and hardier.
There are a lot of stories about how modern day wheat is now a GMO
food which could explain some of the gluten allergy problems it has created. Not to mention this type of wheat is being heavily sprayed with toxic herbicides. So you may want to give an Ancient grain like spelt a try to see if your body will have a better reaction to the spelt gluten.
