Our fresh milled Emmer flour is naturally sweet and rich with a nutty flavor. It can be used in place of your common “whole wheat” flour for almost any recipe. This nutritionally dense flour (over 16% protein) absorbs moisture quickly; more so than other whole wheat flour. When following standard recipes you may find that you need to add more moisture (about 1/4 more) than what the recipe calls for. Emmer flour can be used as an alternative flour for some people suffering from wheat or gluten sensitivities. Some of our wheat-sensitive customers bake with it exclusively! The flour is ground in a fine grind for multipurpose use. It works best in artisan breads, muffins, cookies, and coffee cakes. It also yields a wonderful rich brown rustic pasta.
