What is Whole Wheat Flour
Flour made from hard red spring or winter wheat is called whole wheat flour. All three layers of the wheat berries are ground — the bran, germ, and endosperm — to result in a bold, wholesome flour. Our flour contains the bran, endosperm, and germ, most store bought flours remove one or all of these parts of the wheat berry to make flour. Since our flour contains all three parts it has a delicious nutty flavor rich with bran and fiber.
Whole-wheat flour can be used interchangeably for white whole-wheat flour called for in a recipe, or it can be substituted for half the amount of all-purpose flour in a recipe.
Whole Wheat Flour from Hard Red Winter Wheat
We grind our winter wheat berries into the most amazing multi-purpose whole wheat flour. Soft white wheat has a moderate protein content as well as a mild, sweet flavor. Multi-purpose white flour is best suited for recipes with a tender crumb. A good rule of thumb is you can substitute this flour for any recipe calling for all-purpose flour that uses baking soda, baking powder or both as a leavening agent. The whole wheat all-purpose flour also has the added bonus of being whole wheat, providing you with all the nutrition from the bran, germ, and endosperm. Where traditional all-purpose flour is typically just comprised of the endosperm.
Whole Wheat Bread Flour from Hard Red Spring Wheat
We grind our hard red wheat berries into spectacular whole wheat bread flour. Hard white wheat berries have a higher protein content than soft types of wheat, making them perfect for bread flour. Hard white wheat berries also have more protein than their soft counterparts, but they also have a mild, sweet taste and the beautiful golden color people love in baked goods. Whole grain nutrition without any of the traditional somewhat bitter and robust taste of traditional whole wheat bread flour. Due to the high protein content of white whole wheat bread flour is best suited for baked goods that utilize yeast.
Fresh Milled Whole Wheat Flour In the Kitchen
This flour is perfect for cakes, cookies, muffins, quick bread pancakes and more. It has a lower gluten content than flours made with hard wheat berries providing that tender crumb. Our flour contains no preservatives, so the shelf is one year. Since this flour is whole grain, it uses the bran and germ. Which are high in nutrients and oils, which can go rancid faster than flours non-whole grain counterparts. Storing your whole grain flours in the freezer or fridge in an airtight container is a great way to help make them last longer. Make sure you allow your flour to come to room temperature before baking, otherwise the cold temperature of flour can affect how your recipe turns out.
