We've seen the current interest in heritage flours and we’re keen to help out with ideas and recipes. This organic strong unbleached white flour is made by grounding 100% Aussie wheat using traditional methods. Some bakers it seems are a little nervous about using these flours. It is understandable that they are worried that ancient wheat varieties might be more challenging to work with, and yes, they can take a little getting used to, but one good tip is to start by using them blended with higher protein, modern flours to help get a more manageable dough and loaves with a good rise.
The really great thing about these heritage flours is that they bring bags of flavour to breads, cakes and pastries – something that is often missing in many modern flours. Some bakers report that they find bread made with these flours easier to digest, especially when they have used a long, slow fermentation process.
Organic farming uses the best of traditional agriculture and responsiveness to the land to create biodiversity and environmental balance; a sustainable approach free from artificial intervention.
Grown and milled by innovators who care For over 40 years, Wholegrain Milling Co., lead by the Neale family, have provided Australia’s leading bakers and wholesalers with the very best, locally grown certified organic, sustainable and chemical-free grains and flours. Sourced from Australia’s eastern states, their grains are planted and harvested by farmers who care about the long-term health of the soil. On reaching them, these grains are then ground using their stone or roller mills to create the finest quality flours for bread lovers everywhere.
Sourcing and transportation Sourcing and delivering premium locally grown and chemical-free grains to our mill is Wholegrain Milling's highest priority. Their chemical-free mission is only made possible through their respected network of farmers and the integrity of the trucks that transport the grain. They only accept transport direct from harvest by carriers that follow their stringent practices, giving us a 100% guarantee that the grain that leaves the farm is free from synthetic fertilisers and other harmful chemicals commonly found in unregulated storage and transportation.
Stone-ground milling Wholegrain Milling have pioneered stone milling in Australia for over 40 years, perfecting their process through their very own custom-designed and custom-built mill stone and machinery. This process delivers an unparalleled quality of flour that is bursting with flavour and rich in nutrients. Essentially, the process allows for the grain to pass through the mill slowly and at cooler temperatures to preserve the precious essential enzymes and nutrients retained in the wholegrain, perfect for all your baking needs.
