Organic spelt pasta in wholemeal and white, with lots of shapes, including lasagne. Spelt is useful if you find wheat difficult to digest: but do remember, it is definitely not gluten-free.
At Naturally Good Food we stock a large number of spelt products, including a great variety of spelt pasta products.
Spelt, an ancient cousin of wheat, is one of the oldest cultivated grains. As a Roman, you would have worn a toga and eaten spelt! Spelt pasta simply tastes great and retains its shape and texture during cooking. As it has a more robust texture, it also holds sauce better.

Across the world there are a great number of different pasta shapes - and many more names for each of them! The same pasta can have numerous names worldwide. Farfalle pasta is often called 'butterfly' or 'bowtie' pasta - but what's in a name? Farfalle by any other name tastes as good!
Cooks use different shapes and sizes of pasta for different purposes, with certain shapes holding certain sauces better than others.
At Naturally Good Food we like to give a choice, so as with our other products, we have different spelt pasta shapes. If you prefer a thick, hearty sauce, we suggest that you choose a wholewheat spelt pasta in a fusilli shape, to marry best with your sauce.
We stock spelt pasta in both wholewheat and white varieties.
Spelt is an ancient grain, which should not be confused with common bread wheat. It's a member of the same grain family as wheat, but is an entirely different species, with certain distinct properties. Having fallen from favour as a grain for cultivation in the 19th century, following the rapid development in modern farming techniques, spelt is currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity, as information about its value as a food source, and its ability to be tolerated by many people with wheat sensitivities, becomes more widely known.
The growing interest in ancient wheat grains has also given rise to the increasing popularity of kamut, which originally came from Afghanistan and the north-east of Iran. This grain is twice the size of modern-day wheat and is known for its rich, nutty flavour.
Don't forget, there is a 10% discount at Naturally Good Food for buying a case, so you can eat high-quality food at some good prices. Spelt pasta keeps well, so buying a case makes great sense.
As you would expect from a company that has a huge range of healthy, nutritious products, we don't just stock spelt pasta, but have many lines that feature spelt, including porridge, breadsticks and flour. The vast majority of these are organic.
