Spelta Optimum granum est calidum et pingwe vertuosum est et sanius alys granis Et cum comedenti rectam carnem et rectum sangwinem facit atque letam mentem Et gaudium in mente hominis facit Et quomodocumque comedatur siue in pane suce in alys cibis bona et suanis est Item Si quis adeo infirmus esset qui pre infirmitate comedere non posset Accipiat integra grana speltzenum et ea in aqua coque segimine addito et vitello oui Ita ut propter meliorem saporem libenter comedi posset Et detur infirmo ad comedendum Et eum ut bonum et sanum vngentum nutrius sanat
