FRESH HIGH EXTRACTION WHEAT FLOUR
Great for bread and a good compromise between the full flavour of whole flour and the more high protein strength of the bakers white.
Variety - ORGANIC "Banks"
Grown by: Whispering Pines - NSW
The best 85% of the whole wheat flour.
We sift out the largest of the bran particles leaving a very fine powder that leaves you the best possible balance of maximising flavour and nutrition without closing up the crumb or making your dough difficult to manage.
High extraction flour has been popularised by Chad Robertson’s modern sourdough classic “Tartine Bread”
In appearance this flour looks similar to the whole wheat but upon closer inspection one notices less of the coarser bran particles and a softer lighter flour.
Slightly deeper in those rich and creamy clotted cream tones and with barely visible golden bran particles evident.
a complex suite of flavour creating compounds that develop sweet, creamy, custardy flavours and aromas layered over the more present wheaten flavour brought in on the bran
Sweet beautiful aroma quite unlike the lifeless barren shop bought alternatives
Takes on more water and creates livelier more vital doughs... sourdough bakers take note, reduce your inoculations!!
A great bread flour also makes amazing pasta, sauces and a good all rounder in the kitchen where fuller flavour, texture and nutrition are desired
