Spiced Spelt Pear Loaf

Spelt is a good source of dietary fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals.

This grain is also more water-soluble than wheat, which makes it easier for the body to digest. Due to the many minerals and vitamins spelt contains, it can help regulate metabolism, increase circulation, improve the immune system, lower blood sugar, and reduce bad cholesterol levels.
