Hi all,
in Italy it's quite difficult (or impossible) to find spelt. Farro seems very widespread, instead.
Are the 2 comparable in terms of GTD effects ?

Thanks,

Spelt = Farro

It´s the same grain.

Welcome GF74, Henriette whoi studied these subjects for her degree, taught me here Farro is exactly Emmer grain so look for Emmer in your list and you are safer. !

Spelt and Emmer are not the same in my SWAMI list...

but in my Spelt foods labels translate Farro as Spelt not like Emmer:

this link does make a distinction between farro and spelt.....
I believe MG is right about the emmer....

not an option for me, either one so that problem is solved!

In the Lola's link says:
Quoted Text
What this means is that you have to read the package carefully when you purchase farro


I know PROBIOS BRAND  from Italy, sure they use FARRO in their products not Emmer, and translate in the package to all Europe (UE ) FARRO like Spelt (Ing.) or Dinkel ( Germany.), etc...

I don´t know about others brand. try to find PROBIOS , they use Spelt, not Emmer.
