The result is light, easier-to-rise bread with a distinctive nutty and sweet flavour. Spelt is a highly nutritious and healthy option, packed full of fibre. Use our smooth Cotswold Spelt as an all-purpose healthy baking flour for delicious bread, cake, and biscuit recipes.

    Hi Jane ,
    Thank you for the lovely comment .
    We appreciate the kind words and thank you very much !!
    Enjoy baking with Matthews Flour 🙂

    I buy the flour and my husband bakes the bread! Spelt is our favourite loaf and the pandemic meant we had to look further afield for flour as the supermarket shelves were empty when we needed it. Matthews came up trumps for us and the baker in the house commented that it makes a really lovely soft dough. I wouldn’t know about that myself but I know it makes beautiful bread! Thank you to all the team at Matthews.

    We used your spelt flour to make American pancakes this morning and they were very tasty! I look forward to using it for pizzas in the wood fired oven.

    I have used spelt flour for years but was unable to purchase any during lockdown. Fortunately, Matthews came to the rescue. I made my first batch of rolls using this flour and the results are very good.
    My only criticism is it’s called Light Spelt not white. Light Spelt is sold by an upmarket supermarket and contains a mix of white and whole wheat which I mistakenly thought this was. No matter, I add the wholewheat.

    Happy baking!

    This was our first time using your Spelt flour. The flavour is delicious and the texture we achieve in a bread maker is excellent when using a rapid bake mode. We shall be back for more! Must try some of your other products when they become available.

    This was my first purchase. Excellent flour, which I bought to replace Strong White in my breadmaker. I mix with Dark Rye for a very tasty loaf. Looking forward to making other stuff to see how it compares to Strong White. The packaging/delivery was great also. Multipacks arrived in a very sturdy box, containing 10×1.5kg bags. I love all the graphics/branding also. Really nice experience.

    Hi Flavio, thank you for your kind comments! We are big fans of the Spelt too, we love how tasty it is with the added benefit of it being kind to tummies!

    Happy baking!

    This light white flour is really very good, I am glad I found you and this.
    I make bread with half wholemeal spelt and white spelt, since using your white spelt flour my loaf rises more than ever. I also have made cakes , muffins and scones etc. all have been good. So I am looking forward to trying your wholemeal spelt as well when you have some in stock. Thank you.

  14. Flavio Graser

    My wife and I are wheat-intolerant, so spelt flour is our preferred option. We tried a few brands, but Matthews Cotswold one is THE spelt flour. Great quality, good price!

  15. Gillian TaylorAllen

    Love this flour, very versatile. Have used it for cakes (makes fab living 10 day Herman cakes) and pastry’s. Also hand made bread. Cannot fault it, a good thing from lockdown was finding you 5*’s.

  16. Laura

    Hi George, thank you for the feedback – what a fab idea and sounds very yummy! Please do feel free to send us some photos of your bread – we love to see them!

    Thank you for the fantastic feedback !!
    We are looking forward to your next order 🙂
    Please tag us in social media and please fell free to send us some photos – we would love to see them!

  20. Daphne

    Excellent white spelt flour one of the best I have used. I made soda bread which rose well and tasted very goo and also some spelt and honey cookies. Excellent. Use by date is very good as I bought the 7.5k pack. Very pleased and will order again. Delivery was delayed but that was not the millers fault.

  21. George F

    First time I have used Spelt, I mixed a third of whole meal flour with the it and found it makes a very good tasty loaf . The texture was good and not dense as can happen with all whole meal.

  22. Laura

    Hi George, thank you for your lovely comments – we are big fans of the Spelt too! Please do feel free to send us any photos of what you make and tag us in any social media!

    This spelt flour is superb. It mixes well with the wholemeal to produce good loaves and great baps. Having found Matthews I intend to remain a regular customer. I took up baking several years ago when our local bakery (Kinseys) closed and it is great to find a family company that is well run and has great quality product. You get what you pay for. So true.

  24. Laura

    Hi Michelle, Spelt is a great alternative especially when you have digestive problems so it is great to hear how much it has helped your family! Please do feel free to send us any photos or recipes of what you make!

    Happy baking!

    Laura

  25. Michelle

    I enjoy using the White Spelt because of the consistency or texture of the dough it produces. Although we still eat shop-bought baked goods made with regular wheat, I use Spelt partly as a means to give our digestive systems a break from modern wheat. I have family members who have had digestive problems improve by using only Spelt in their baking. I was happy to be able to source this flour online after waiting for availability. The flour I received has a best before date of one year. It won’t last that long in the cupboard.

Milling and Provenance

Spelt was first cultivated 6000 to 900 years ago. It is referred to as an ancient grain along with Einkorn and Emmer - the other “Farro” kinds of wheat. We work with spelt farmers around the Cotswolds and UK and share a de-hulling plant at one local farm. The spelt is then collected by the mill and conditioned in our 100-year-old pine bins before being milled into different types of spelt flour.

Recipe Recommendation

We recommend using a pan for spelt bread. Alternatively, blend 20% spelt into your wholegrain flours for added flavour and a lighter loaf.

Spelt is also known as Farro Grande in Italy, “Dinkel wheat” in Germany and the French call it “wheat of the Gauls”. It has been cultivated for the last 6000 but possibly 9000 years and is a hybrid of emmer and wild goat grass.
