Whole Grain Red Winter Wheat Flour from Community Grains
Community Grains flour is uniquely milled offering great texture, performace and flavor. Unlike conventionally milled whole grain flour, 100% of the germ, bran and endosperm are retained, resulting in a truly “whole wheat” flour. The red winter wheat gives the flour a distinctive full-bodied, nutty flavor. It is great for sourdough starters and pizza dough and versatile enough to be used in quick bread and pastry recipes. It also makes stunning brownies and chocolate chip cookies.
