Stone-Ground Organic Flour, 2.5kg
The Daily Grind flour can be used to directly substitute your All-Purpose Flour. This flour has a beautiful flavour and contains the naturally occurring vitamins and minerals found in the grain. No additives or preservatives! Just the grain!
Made in Fergus, Ontario by 1847 Stone Milling. They produce some of the most ecologically sustainable flour in Canada, offsetting their power with green energy (solar panels) and packaging in recyclable/compostable packaging. They also try to source all of their grains from local Ontario farmers (except grains that do not grow well in Ontario; which are then sourced from Western Canada). Their grains are always Certified Organic!
What is the difference between fresh milled flour and bleached flour?
Fresh milled bread flour has different properties than bleached bread flour. Bleached literally means when the flour turns from a brown colour to white. Oxygen in the air reacts with the flour to turn it white. This natural oxidation process helps develop the gluten in the flour, making the dough stretchy. If you like a light fluffy loaf add 1tsp of vital wheat gluten per cup of fresh milled flour. If you like a denser hearty loaf use the fresh milled bread flour as is! Another major difference is the taste. The oxidation process also tends to mellow the flavours of the grains.
