My mailman says he's been doing some experiments using spelt flour in the place of BRF in PF style jar cultures.
First...what is spelt? Go to http://www.spelt.com/ and check it out. In short spelt is "...grain is naturally high in fiber, and contain significantly more protein than wheat. Spelt is also higher in B complex vitamins, and both simple and complex carbohydrates..."
Anyway...the mailman tried jars with 100% spelt and a 50/50 spelt/BRF mix. He says PES Hawaiian, Acadian Coast, and Puerto Rican strains have begun vigorous colonization of both 100% and 50% jars, with Hawaiian jars innoculated 10/17 at 95% colonization as of today.
The proof of course is in the fruiting...stay tuned.
Yeah...I'm excited...more random spelt thoughts from the web:
"Spelt's uniqueness is also derived from its genetic makeup and nutrition profile. Spelt has high water solubility, so the nutrients are easily absorbed by the body. Spelt contains special carbohydrates which are an important factor in blood clotting and stimulating the body's immune system. It is also a superb fiber resource and has large amounts of B-complex vitamins. Total protein content is from 10 to 25% greater than the common varieties of commercial wheat."
The concept of water soluability in conjunction with Inner Reseroir Tech would seem to indicate my mailman will have a great Thanksgiving.
