I've been curious about spelt and khorasan (kamut) for a while now, and had decided to give spelt a try. I found a kilo of white spelt flour in my local (Moore-Wilson for those of you in NZ), and as I don't usually consider flour an expensive commodity did not look at the price. When I left the check-out I examined the invoice - too find I'd paid $9 for a kilo of the stuff! By comparison I usually get 20kg of industry standard bread flour for $20 at he same place. I have to add that I'm more than a little sceptical about the claimed health benefits of these grains vs standard wheat, but this is really all I can find about these grains on the net. Could someone please enlighten me about the culinary benefits of spelt (and kamut) that would justify the price.
