    I'm thinking you either spilled the flour, swept it up and want to use it.
    Or is spoiled. Never heard of it. Thanks google.

    Organic spelt is a non-hybrid relative of our present day wheat that dates back more than 9,000 years. Spelt flour has a unique nutty flavor. It can be used in most recipes calling for wheat flour.

    sound like regular wheat flour- just expensive.

    It will taste like shit.

    Just buy some ice cream or chocolate or something so the person in question has something to eat for dessert.

    This can't be a gluten thing, because spelt has gluten in it I think?
