Um, I said it had been altered. To my knowledge not all wheat is GMO yet. And no, spelt is not just a different plant. It's the forerunner to modern wheat, a sub-species and an ancient grain. I believe it once grew wild.

Spelt is an ancient grain that traces its heritage back long before many wheat hybrids. Many of its benefits come from this fact: it offers a broader spectrum of nutrients compared to many of its more inbred cousins in the Triticum (wheat) family. Spelt features a host of different nutrients. It is an excellent source of manganese, and a good source of protein, copper, and zinc.
