Wikipedia wrote:Spelt (Triticum spelta), also known as dinkel wheat, or hulled wheat, is a species of wheat cultivated since approximately 5000 BC.
Spelt was an important staple in parts of Europe from the Bronze Age to medieval times; it now survives as a relict crop in Central Europe and northern Spain and has found a new market as a health food. Spelt is sometimes considered a subspecies of the closely related species common wheat (Triticum aestivum), in which case its botanical name is considered to be Triticum aestivum subsp. spelta. It is a hexaploid wheat, which means it has six sets of chromosomes. Over the years 2004 to 2014, spelt gained widespread popularity as a wheat substitute for making artisan breads, pasta and cereals.

Wikipédia wrote:A espelta ou trigo-vermelho (Triticum spelta) é uma espécie da família das gramíneas, próxima do trigo. Muito consumida em partes da Europa desde a Idade do Bronze até a Idade Média, hoje é pouco plantada, embora ainda seja cultivada na Europa Central e na Itália e tenha encontrado um novo mercado na área de alimentos saudáveis. Por vezes, a espelta é considerada uma subespécie do trigo comum (T. aestivum) e recebe o nome científico Triticum aestivum subsp. spelta.
