Cotswold Stoneground Light Spelt

(26 customer reviews)


Rich in flavour spelt is superb for bread making and speciality pastry. Stripped from its coarse outer layer to end with a smooth white flour. Great healthy option with it being easier to digest rather than normal flours.

    I am very pleased with this spelt flour. I will be ordering more flour from you soon. Thank you for working through this and getting flour out to people. I am looking forward to trying out different flour from you.

  2. Barbara

    I have been really pleased with both the white and wholemeal spelt flour. I use a 60/40 mix in my bread maker with great results. Excellent service from Matthew’s, much better than buying through Amazon as the flour received from them had a short shelf life.

  3. Alan Hart

    I have been baking my own bread for a a number of years, and have just used the Cotswold White Spelt Flour for the 1st time, and I am very impressed. I will be buying the Wholemeal Spelt as soon as I am able to place an order for that!

  4. Roger Slater

    Excellcent quality and service.

  5. Sarah Fortes

    Hi Kathleen, thanks so much and so pleased you get good results using the spelt flour. Thanks also for your tip for sandwich making – really useful to know!

  6. Kathleen L

    Excellent! I’ve used Spelt flour for a number one of years to make a superb loaf in my bread maker. I’m so pleased to have discovered your very good online service. Thank you!
    Here’s a tip for bread maker users……I find that the crust of the loaf is very crispy and the loaf can be a little dry particularly if you want to make sandwiches. I now put the loaf into a plastic bag as soon as it comes out of the machine to allow all the moisture to get back into the loaf. Once cool I slice the loaf,reverse the bag and pop into the freezer.

  7. Carol Pay

    Suoerb! I can’t praise this flour too highly.
    I’m gluten intolerant, but this wonderful flour makes a loaf that is easy on the digestive system, and has a great flavour & texture.
    Like many people, I first bought it from Aldi. Now I use it for all my baking.
    The flour is first class, & so is the online service.
    Thank you so very much.

  8. Sarah Fortes

    Spelt is great for people who struggle to digest regular wheat flour and we are delighted to hear that Matthews Flour works well for you.

  9. andieperenti

    I only eat spelt flour as have an intolerance to wheat as a rule. The Matthews Cotswold is the only spelt I can eat that does not have an adverse reaction on my digestion..
    I use for all my baking and cooking needs.
    Thank you.

    Mathews White Spelt Flour is great, my wife uses it for fruit cakes, welsh cakes pikelets, sauces and general cooking. I make our bread in a Panasonic machine using programme 14. 500g Mathews spelt flour, 1tspn demerara sugar, 1tspn salt, 1/2tspn xanthan gum, 1tspn butter, 1tsp Allinson easy bake yeast.Do not add the yeast at this time. To 300ml of warm water ( less than 42deg C) I add one egg, and hand whip to combine. Pour egg mixture into bread pan first, and then flour mixture on top, make a small indentation on the top and put the yeast in and scoop the flour over. Place bread pan into bread machine. Select prog.14 and 1hr 50minutes later a nice tasty loaf.

  11. Elizabeth Tully

    I use spelt flour for everything I bake. Muffins, scones and bread with this flour. And the texture is totally different compared with using wheat flour. My sister cannot tolerate wheat flour, and yet she has no problem with spelt flour.. Thank you.

  12. t.sylwester

    Great flour for bread and for baking

  13. Judith Penny

    I first tried this flour when I saw it in my local Aldi supermarket. Loved the taste of my home made bread using this flour so decided to buy online as I had never seen or heard of it before. Love it.

  14. Mary O’Kelly

    Finding this flour in Aldi (Ireland) has been a revelation! It makes the most wonderful bread, cakes and homemade pizza. I’ve always had difficulty digesting wheat but this Spelt is wonderful. Will be ordering in bulk from you!

  15. Sarah Fortes

    Great to know Carol, glad you had such good results using our flour.

  16. Carol heale

    Bought mine from Aldi. Fabulous results, light and tastes wonderful. My 5yr old grandson loves it.

  17. Bertie Matthews

    Thanks for the feedback Shellie!

  18. Shellie Eyre

    Excellent flour which I use to make bread for a friend who struggles with wheat. Easy to work, less kneading than wheat and an excellent, light loaf.

    This is also outstanding value and I will be reordering. Highly recommended.

  19. Alek

    In general very easy to purchase a product, good selection to choose. Communication very quick to answer costumer’s questions. Delivery very quick (less then 4 days to Scotland and over the weekend). well done with good sealed double bags. Bought 16 kg white spelt for home cooking. So far have done cookies, home bread, dumplings , use it as a thickener for soups. Will be trying pasta soon. Great substitute for wheat flour or for mixing with other types of flours. Definitely coming back to FWPMathews.

  20. Jonjo

    I bulk bought for my Dad who is 92 and housebound. Service was very quick and the flour arrived ahead of schedule. He prefers using spelt flour for bread making and was struggling getting this using a supermarket delivery service. He’s delighted with the added bonus that he is also delighted with me. Happy days!

  21. Brian McClellan-Dunn

    Excellent quality and value, the only spelt flour I have found where you can use 100% spelt flour and have a great texture bread, also have been able to reduce xanthan gum by 50%. Also used for pastry, biscuits, cakes and sauces. Happy to give it unreserved recommendation, thank you

  22. Jonjo

    I’ve been using it to make fab cheese scones for a while now but try it for the tastiest pasta you’ve ever made! 75% Matthews spelt and 25% coarse ground semolina, once kneaded leave a good 45min to rest as the spelt takes a bit longer to absorb the egg. Reallllllly tasty, enjoy.

  23. Richard

    I predominantly use Spelt flour for my no-kneed bread baking; I ordered 10 x 1.5 bags – the service from Matthews could not be better and it was also cheaper than ordering from a large third part Company (including delivery costs). The flour is as good (if not better) than a brand I used previously. I will add Matthews’ Spelt wholemeal to my next order of flour, as I like to have a 60/40 mix loaf. Although I will use the flour months before the ‘best before date’ it is good to know you can bulk buy and not worry about shelf life. Good product, good service.

  24. Robert

    Mathews light spelt is brilliant stuff. I make my own bread using an Ambiano bread machine I bought from Aldi for next to nothing. I like to use the French bread programme because it gives a crusty loaf. I use half strong white organic flour and half Matthews light spelt. This produces a light and tasty loaf. I have tried organic spelt from a different company and the result was a loaf with a dense and heavy texture.

  25. Mac Mceleny

    We have used other spelt flour but this is as good as it gets,we put it on dark crust to make it crisp.The delivery was very fast

  26. John Moors

    Great product, recently found out my Wife who is Wheat intolerant, can have this as a substitute and it doesn’t affect her, has great properties and works well in so many recipes. Bake to making bread she really enjoys and so much more. Thanks

  27. Angela Elliott

    I can highly recommend this flour: I make all our own bread by hand. This flour was very easy to work with and produced three very light loaves. The flour was purchased from Aldi.

  28. Georgia

    I make all my own bread and use a mixture of white spelt and crunch or 8 grain on a 3 – 1 ratio. I use a fast bread technique and its delicious! I have to say the speed of delivery to Northern Ireland is outstanding too!

  29. Andrea

    I was not at all sure which programme to use for making spelt bread in my Aldi Bread making machine, I tried two programmes using advice from the Internet and they were not successful, so I called Matthews and their Accounts Manager suggested I try programme number 1. Success first time!
    As I have to be careful where sugar is concerned , after the first loaf using 1 teaspoonful, I omitted sugar on the next loaves and the bread is really delicious.
    I also like the reinforced edge of the top of the flour bag – it makes things much easier.

  30. Anthony Bailey

    I have heard plenty of good things about spelt flour but only took the plunge when Mathews flour turned up in Aldi! My wife does have problems with gluten but the weaker nature of gluten in spelt flour doesn’t give her a problem. Spelt makes a very consistent stable loaf that tastes good and toasts really evenly. I’ve bulk bought this white spelt flour as I am so impressed with it. Incidentally it doesn’t need the amount of proving that standard wheat flours need.
