where to buy white spelt flour

I have a new cookbook that calls for white spelt flour in many of the recipes. Any ideas on where to find it? I have whole spelt flour but have yet to see white in the stores ...

Thanks in advance!

  1. Phone Famous Foods up on Kingsway ditto Galloways in New West they both have a helluva selection.

      Thank you - good suggestions! I hadn't even heard of white spelt flour before this cookbook!! :)

      1. You may have a bit of difficulty as regular supplies are very scarce.
        The worldwide demand for organic grains along with the extra processing required to make white spelt have some of the major growers out of stock until the new crop comes in September.

        1. I wonder whether passing whole spelt flour through a mesh sieve might yield something passable for white spelt flour. Maybe it depends on the actual recipe? At any rate, organic spelt flour at Sunrise Market, Powell & Gore.
