Bolted Stone Ground Organic Emmer Flour
Bolted Stone Ground Organic Emmer Flour – 3, 10 & 50 lb bags
About bolted flour: Bolted (or high-extraction) flour is whole grain flour with some percentage of the bran sifted out, which makes it a nice compromise between hearty 100% whole grain and all purpose white flour. It’s ideal for when you want a lighter loaf or dough yet wish to retain the high nutrition found in the germ of the wheat berry.
Stone milled fresh on demand from the whole emmer berry and then sifted to produce a fine flour – Breadtopia receives the whole emmer berries and stone mills the whole grain into flour as needed to fill customer orders. Our customers are assured of receiving freshly milled flour every time.
Emmer (German for “hulled grain”) is one of the earliest forms of cultivated grains. Dating back thousands of years, like Einkorn Emmer was allegedly found in the tombs of ancient Egypt. It is referred to by some as “The Pharaoh’s Wheat”. Emmer in its wild form is a cross between Einkorn and grass. It is unique in flavor, nutritional benefits and genetic makeup. Where modern wheat has 42 chromosomes, Emmer has only 28.
This Emmer is a whole grain product that differs from the Italian import Emmer which is semi-pearled.
Some Additional Emmer Attributes:
Like Einkorn, is considered an original crop from the advent of agriculture in the fertile crescent
Emmer is the grandmother of durum, and like durum makes excellent pasta and flatbread
Emmer contains high levels of vitamins, minerals, & antioxidants as well as fiber and protein
Note: Since this flour contains wheat germ and wheat germ is an oil, this flour will not keep for as long as typical commercially milled white flour. Do not purchase more than you expect to consume within a few months. We mill fresh within a couple days of shipping. We recommend keeping your flour in air tight packaging or container and storing in a cool place or preferably the refrigerator or freezer.
