Bolted Stone Ground Organic Spelt Flour
Bolted Stone Ground Organic Spelt 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.
When you choose organic stone milled grains and bolt them to achieve your desired texture, you have an ideal flour for many applications.
Spelt is an ancient variety of wheat with its roots in the Fertile Crescent some 9000 years ago. It is more widely used in Europe where it’s known as dinkel in Germany and farro in Italy. While higher in protein than commonly used wheat varieties, the nature of its proteins results in less gluten formation when making bread dough. Many people with wheat allergies or sensitivities can enjoy bread made with spelt flour.
Spelt is renowned for its health benefits but also delivers a mellow nutty flavor. Use in place of ordinary wheat for breads and pasta. This whole spelt sourdough bread recipe is a favorite of ours.
Milled Fresh — Our spelt flour is milled fresh upon order. We use granite stone mills and mill at low temperature within a day or two of shipping. Your flour arrives as fresh as possible, retaining maximum nutritional value and flavor.
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 recommend keeping your flour in air tight packaging or container and storing in a cool place or preferably the refrigerator or freezer.
