Wink Organic spelt, supposively an alternative to wheat and considered the mother grain?

Hi again,
I'm one of those people who looks into everything I buy and I like to do research and recieve feedback on opinions that pertain to what I'm asking about. Right now, I'm going to REALLY eliminate wheat from my diet this time, and as much gluten as I can. I started to do it, but ended up buying Kashi blueberry waffles(full of wheat) and I also bought oatmeal bread but I know it has wheat in it. Sooooo, I'm kinda excited because I went to Whole foods today and examined EVERY frozen bread possible that was wheat free and remembered that VeggieGirl mentioned something about Spelt bread and it didn't look all puny and little like the other breads and it said on the back....

Spelt is the "Mother Grain" of the five ancient grains. A good wheat alternative because spelt's gluten is easier for many to digest whilde containing more portein and fiber than wheat.(BTW, right there I was like cool. )Spelt , the most used grain in the U.S. until 1910 has a delicious, sweet, nutty taste that is regaining popularity on America's tables today.

Then it says:
Note: If you have a wheat or gluten allergy we remommend that you consult your doctor regarding which cereal grains you should avoid before eating this bread. Spelt bread may not be digestible by some people with certain wheat and gluten allergies. (So, Losec I guess that goes for you right?) I tasted it and it is soooo good. I was like "This is what bread is supposed to taste like."

So there is a reason why I have constipation problems and it may be wheat. I already eliminated cows milk from my diet and i still have some problems, although the colace is helping but I can't take it for the rest of my life! Although this bread has gluten in it, does it mean that it's still not as good as "gluten free" bread? Is ALL gluten bad, like spelt and oatmeal? All opinions and ANY feedback is greatly appreciated. Right now, I'm going to do a search on the net and google it. This bread is awesome and it's not that expensive, I got it for $3.49. Oh, and what do you do since it is frozen, do you guys let it sit out for a few minutes. Today I microwaved it but I won't do it all the time.

Re: Organic spelt, supposively an alternative to wheat and considered the mother grain?

back LOL

Made from spelt—a so-called “ancient grain”—spelt bread was initially formulated for people with allergies. The small amount of gluten in spelt is usually tolerated by people who are sensitive to wheat or wheat gluten. Spelt bread is usually denser and drier than wheat bread, but has a similar flavor—slightly nutty and sweet.

Varieties
Spelt bread is available in rolls and loaves of various shapes and sizes.

Buying and storing tips
Buy spelt bread in the refrigerated- or frozen-foods section of health food stores or supermarkets. Store in a plastic bag at room temperature, and use within a few days.

Availability
Spelt bread is available year-round.

Preparation, uses, and tips
Spelt bread’s taste is greatly improved by toasting. Spread toasted spelt bread with a small amount of tahini (sesame seed butter) and honey, then sprinkle with raisins.

Where is your signature? What do you mean? And, do you think her arthritis is due to wheat? Did she check with her doctor about the fish oil? Cause that would help. So, how long did she abstain from wheat?

Re: Organic spelt, supposively an alternative to wheat and considered the mother grain?

Just read all your posts on spelt. Just wanted to add I went to a naturopath doctor who recommended I don't eat wheat products and cows milk products for a while. I wanted to let you know a few other alternatives. Spelt flakes are a good cereal breakfast. They sell them in the health food store. Also millet is good for a cereal and buckwheat is good too. All can be substituted for wheat. As alternatives to cow's milk product there are goat's milk products which are nasty, but what is very good is almond milk. In the health food store. It tastes great with spelt cereal. Just wanted to add my two cents, hope it helped.
