Grain Mill Wagon Experience: As an enthusiastic newbie to grinding my own grain, I envisioned a mill that was easy, quick, quite, and powerful The WonderMill proved to be all that and more, and I have no intention of ever buying or using another mill within my lifetime! I've successfully ground several types of grain with the Wondermill and the resulting flour has worked perfectly in each recipe I've tried I look forward to many more years of grinding our own whole-grain, non-GMO flour with the WonderMill to feed our growing family.

    Spelt is a wheat species :/

    • You’re right, it is! Thankfully my husband seems to be able to tolerate spelt though. Maybe because it’s not genetically modified?

      • Alex says:

        It probably depends on what exactly your husband can’t tolerate about wheat. If he has mild gluten intolerance he might be okay with spelt because spelt has reduced gluten compared to more common forms of wheat, but is still a source of gluten. For those with severe gluten intolerance, spelt is completely off the table. If he has a true IgE allergy instead of an intolerance, some allergens in common wheat aren’t found in spelt. For me, I have severe gluten intolerance (Celiac’s) and cannot have spelt at all.

    Ooh, these look yummy. Do you have an opinion on what else I could replace the spelt with? and the possible ratio? My daughter is GF and I don’t have spelt in the house. I’d love to try these though!
