Unsweetened. Whole grain. No added salt. High fibre. Non-GM. No artificial anythings. Kosher - KLBD. Vegetarian Society approved. Light, toasty, whole-grain spelt. Pure pleasure. First, the crackly crunch. Then, the taste: toasty and nutty. Each flake is one grain of natural spelt, simply steamed, rolled and lightly toasted. This rare approach yields a rare flavour and texture. And let's not forget the healthful inner riches of fibre and protein, immunity-enhancing and digestion-friendly. No added anythings, so you can add your own choice of sweet somethings. The spelt story (it's very old). Spelt is an ancient wheat grain, cultivated since the Bronze Age and grown in Britain since Roman times - that's aeons (yes, actual aeons) before the chemicals and standardisation of today's common wheat industry. Long live spelt! The feel-good factor. Spelt tastes irresistibly good, and it's stealing a march on common wheat. It's easier to digest (even if you're iffy about wheat), it's higher in protein, and it has more fibre. If your digestive and immune systems could cheer, they would. For the love of spelt. There's a whole lot of spelt in Rude Health. You'll find digestible spelt mixed with heart healthy oats in ourGranolas and Mueslis, and in the Thins too. As for our Spelt Oatys, they seriously take the biscuit. In fact, the only thing we haven't put spelt in, is our drinks. All in good time. Hello! At Rude Health, we choose the best of the best ingredients and put them together in ways that make their natural flavours sing. No need to fortify or falsify. No need to mess with the planet. With great food inside us, we feel we can do just about anything. Eat right, stay brilliant. PS: You're in health when... You wobble in the right places. You smile at the person in the mirror. You make hay and violà: the sun shines. Food for thought. What we leave out is just as important as what we put in.

Whole-Grain Spelt (100%)
Preparation & Storage
- How we like them. Delicacy in a dish: pour your favourite milk all over a spelty heap. That's it. Sweet as you like: add figs and honey, banana and maple syrup, or a handful of fresh berries. Contrast crunchy and soft: sprinkle Spelt Flakes on Bircher muesli, stuff them into a chewy breakfast bar, and give creamy cheesecakes a crispy edge.
Store in a dry place.
