Spelt and salt


Hi guys,

I read in a magazine yesterday that salt is needed in a sourdough to suppress the bacteria that chew out the proteins, which is one of the reasons that Italian unsalted bread has a distinctive texture. Does anyone know whether increasing the salt level above that used for normal bakers wheat flour when making a spelt dough would decrease the slackness problems associated with spelt flour?
