Organic wheat flour of coarse grinding Ecorod, 1 kg
Organic Whole Wheat Flour is made from the whole grain of organic soft wheat, along with the shell (s) and germ. Due to this, such flour contains more vitamins, minerals and nutrients than ordinary wheat flour. Whole grain flour is a valuable product for a healthy diet.
Ash content is one of the main characteristics of such flour. It displays the mineral content that remains after the flour is burned (minerals do not burn). The lower the ash content, the whiter the flour. Coarse whole grain flour has a high ash content. for its production, whole grain is used together with a bran shell.
Protein content (9-15%), mainly glutenin and gliadin, is the second important characteristic of flour. The percentage of gliadin and glutenin determines the quality of the dough: glutenin gives it elasticity and stickiness, and thanks to gliadin, the dough stretches. Kneading the dough converts gliadin and glutenin, combined with water, into gluten, which forms a crumb. Roughly speaking, the higher the gluten content, the higher the strength of the flour. Bran particles in whole grain flour weaken the gluten structure, retain a lot of water, and although such flour contains a lot of proteins and nutrients, it is difficult to bake bread from such flour, since the dough is "weak". To avoid this, we recommend mixing wholemeal flour with premium flour at a ratio of 50%: 50% or 10%: 90%, respectively.
Organic whole wheat flour is great for baking bread in a bread maker.
