Grain has been a staple of the human diet for thousands of years. Wonderfully simple and imaginative dishes created from buckwheat, spelt, barley, oats, millet, corn, rice, rye and wheat continue to captivate us today.
Cereal grain contains almost all nutrients and building blocks that are essential to our bodies. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, unsaturated fatty acids and fibers.
Commercially available white flour is processed to ensure a long shelf life – at the expense of the kernel’s vital ingredient – ents. It only contains a tasteless, odorless extract from the grain known as endosperm.
Though whole meal flour contains all parts of the kernel, vitamins, vital nutrients and flavor’s deteriorate shortly after milling. After a few days, a grated apple or harvested lettuce is no longer suitable for consumption, yet we cannot visually see the same process with grains.
Our suggestion: Take a variety of grains home with you and mill them yourself! You can mill your own flour as needed and process it right away. Our hawos mills are designed to provide you with an excellent result – every time.
Once you smell the freshly milled flour and taste the power of its kernel in your culinary creations, you’ll know what we mean.
