Our Puffed Emmer is obtained by blowing the spelled grain that comes from our organic crops.
Recommended for a light diet, it is obtained by steaming the spelled grains, as is the case with oats and puffed rice.
It is a fundamental ingredient in an energy-rich breakfast because it goes very well with milk or yogurt together with dried or fresh fruit and is rich in vitamins and minerals, such as magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium and zinc. Thanks to its versatility it is also perfect for preparing desserts and savory recipes.
Counteracts the drop in energy
Whole spelt, in flakes, puffed or in the form of derivatives, including bread, has the great advantage of providing energy to the body in a slow way. In fact, it has a lower glycemic index than that of wheat and allows you to better modulate insulin secretion to limit sudden drops during training. The merit is of the complex carbohydrates and fiber of which it is a source that ensure energy and satiety for a long time.
Spelt provides a series of precious vitamins to combat the sense of fatigue during and after the workout. It provides B vitamins. “Contains vitamin B2 and vitamin B3, which play a fundamental role in the energy metabolism of fats, sugars and proteins. This cereal is also a source of tryptophan, a precursor of serotonin and dopamine, neurotransmitters that help you feel energized during training. Furthermore, its grains combined in the same meal with foods that provide vitamin C (spinach, lettuce, rocket, kiwi, citrus fruits) provide iron more easily assimilated by the body, useful for less fatigue”, says the expert.
Promotes muscle and bone health
Spelt provides methionine, an essential amino acid. “Combined with legumes (chickpeas, lentils, beans, peas) in the same meal, it provides all the essential amino acids involved in the development and maintenance of muscles. In addition, it promotes the formation of proteins, which are essential for post-workout muscle recovery. Spelt is also a good source of calcium, a bone-healthy mineral. It strengthens the skeleton and reduces the risk of suffering joint pain and osteoporosis” says the expert.
Helps to stay away from cramps
Spelt is rich in vitamins that have an antioxidant action. "This cereal provides in particular good quantities of vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E which act as antioxidants for the control of free radicals that form during intense efforts, reducing inflammatory states during physical activity", says nutritionist Nicoletta Mouthpiece. Finally, its grains are an extraordinary source of magnesium. "This mineral promotes the correct functioning of the circulatory system and provides the muscles with an important help, counteracting the cramps that can occur during and after training".
