Wheat - Chemical Free, Non GMO Hard White Wheat
- Customer Reviews (0)
Our Non GMO, Chemical Free hard white wheat ideal for bread making. If you're just starting out with whole grain baking don't confuse "whole grain white wheat" with store-bought "white flour"! White wheat kernels are actually light brown in color, while red wheat kernels are reddish-brown. Store-bought white flour, on the other hand, is essentially nothing more than the endosperm (energy-producing carbohydrate) part of the kernel, with nearly everything nutritious removed in the interest of indefinite after-milling shelf life... which benefits huge commercial millers, at the expense of your health and the character of your food.
Ideal for baking: Our grain is triple- cleaned. It's also been tested, in the most meaningful way possible: By baking bread with it. You can depend on wheat from River Cottage Farm to make bread and other baked goods that rise well, taste wonderful, and are packed with wholesome, natural nutrition! For those who may want to sprout some, our wheat is fully sproutable.
Beat nutrient oxidation! In whole-grain foods, the plant's cellular walls protect nutrients from oxidation. The process of oxidation begins to occur as soon as grain is ground, exposing the cell's contents to oxygen in the air. Flour that is several days (or more) old, has been exposed to oxygen that inevitably diminishes its nutritional value. The way to get full nutrition from whole grain foods is to mill them when you need them, right in your kitchen. Modern high-speed grain mills make it fast and easy to enjoy the freshest, best tasting and most nutritious food imaginable!
Super-cleaned: All of our grain is triple-cleaned (also called "triple washed") to ensure purity and protect your grain mill from any foreign objects. (Grain that isn't sufficiently cleaned may contain small stones that will damage or destroy a grain mill... not to mention that you don't want such things in your food!)
Non-GMO: All of River Cottage Farm whole grain products are natural (non-GMO). This applies equally to both the Organic and the Certified Chemical Free grain.
