Whatever anyone tells you, spelt is a type of wheat, though some people who struggle with eating bread wheat find that they are fine with spelt. Whether this is because of differences in the grains or the processes by which each is typically made into loaves is not yet determined. For the purposes of this book, all you really need to know is that spelt makes a relatively high-protein flour with plenty of nutty flavour, especially if you choose wholemeal/wholegrain.
