Why It’s Important To Utilise A Range Of Ingredients When Making Bread

Like most foods, flour does not provide a complete supply of all essential nutrients. Other ingredients used in making bread, especially milk and yeast, provide some additional amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Soy flour, rich in protein and amino acids, can also be used be as a bread improver when added to whole grain flour in homemade bread making. Other grains such as barley, buckwheat, corn, rice and rye can be ground into flour and are often mixed with wheat flour to offer other nutritional advantages.

The Difference Between Commercial Flour And Fresh Flour

A commercial miller can make a wide variety of flours from the same wheat. Most commercial whole wheat bread contain substantial amounts of white flour. True whole wheat grain flour is darker, coarser and stronger in flavour than white flour. Because the bran and germ are present, whole grain flour has a limited shelf life and goes off if stored at room temperature for longer than 72 hours. By learning from our home milling specialists, however, you can create the wholegrain wheat flour that’s rich in protein, thiamine, niacin, minerals and dietary fibre.

How to Do Commercial Milling Machines Work

The milling process by which flour is made separates the wheat endosperms from the bran layers commercial mills must remove the wheat germ from their flour because the highly nutritious oil (like any fresh food) has a limited shelf life and is therefore not compatible with modern supermarket and warehousing needs. 28 of the 30 known minerals, vitamins, and trace elements found in a single grain of wheat are typically lost in the commercial milling process to produce white flour with an unlimited shelf life.
