For those of you who want to incorporate more whole grains into your diet, but are new to the world of grinding, let’s talk about why you would want to grind your own grains and beans at home.
When you grind your own grains at home, you will actually be getting the WHOLE grain (the bran and germ). Commercial flours often remove the germ because it contains oil that can turn rancid when stored long term.
When grinding your own wheat, you can control how fine or course you want it. The Nutrimill shines in this category allowing you the ability to easily adjust for fine pastry flour or more course for texture in your baked goods.
My husband even agrees, the taste is significantly better since I’ve started using my fresh ground flours, and trust me, he takes his title as “Recipe Tester” very seriously.
Hard white wheat is still 100% whole grain. I use it for my whole wheat bread, pancakes, muffins, cookies, biscuits…pretty much every recipe I can that uses wheat flour.
