The most important alternative cereals for organic production are spelt, einkorn, emmer, and KAMUT®. Few spelt varieties are grown as land race populations. The first spelt variety suggested for growth in Europe was Baulander Speltz, whereas Schwabenkorn, Altgold, Frankenkorn, Oberkulmer, and Holstenkorn are often grown in German-speaking countries. Spelt is harvested in the middle of summer, before full maturity. In most cases, grain does not preserve good germination properties; therefore, it has to be stored at low temperatures and in low relative air humidity. Kernel quality is a complex combination of physical and chemical characteristics whose expression depends on their genetic nature and the influence of environment. Triticale is often included in prepared mixed-grain hot and cold cereals, and muffin flours. For bread making, flour from triticale is less suitable due to the lower quality of glutinous, an elastic protein complex of glutens made of gliadins and glutenins.
