Traditional Milling

Milling in the traditional way,  our stones mill slowly and coolly. The whole grain is used, including the husk (or bran) and the wheatgerm. We are exempt from regulations which require most modern mills to artificially add back certain nutrients to their plain white or brown flour. 

 

To produce our Fine White, Milestone and Bran we sieve the Whole Grain, separating it into very fine endosperm (Fine White), not so fine (Milestone) and then Bran.

 

The flour is available in four grades:

  • Fine White – like a plain flour, but wholemeal that has been sieved, suitable for most baking purposes: bread, savoury pastry, pizza bases, biscuits and cakes. 

  • Milestone – coarser that the Fine White, ideal for: bread, pasta, pizza and biscuits. 

  • Whole Grain - coarser texture with identifiable pieces of bran, ideal for: heavier bread and other bakery products. Start by mixing 50/50 with your normal all-purpose flour. 

  • Bran - Wheat bran is a source of fibre.  It is used most often as a remedy for constipation and other bowel disorders, but it can also be used in brewing, nutrition bars and beauty products.

 

With our Whole Grain Flour, there are no additives, improving agents, preservatives, enzymes, or bleaching agents in any of our flour. Nothing added and nothing removed, just the natural grain that has been a staple of mankind’s diet for at least 10,000 years.

Tips for Baking

 

Here are a few quick tips to convert your favourite recipes to whole grain:

 

  • In cookies, scones, pancakes, muffins, and quick breads (like banana bread), feel free to substitute whole grain flour for all-purpose flour one-to-one, without making other changes.
     

  • In yeast breads that need to rise, feel free to substitute whole wheat flour for half of the all-purpose flour one-to-one, without making other changes.
     

  • To make yeast breads 100% whole wheat, add an extra 2 teaspoons liquid per cup of whole wheat flour, and let the dough rest for 25 minutes before kneading.
     

  • White whole wheat flour and fresh whole wheat flour tend to have the sweetest, mildest flavours.
     

  • Work your way up slowly, gradually replacing more and more of the all-purpose flour with whole grain flour.
     

  • For a sweeter flavour, replace 2-3 tablespoons of the liquid with orange juice.
