Our Organic Flour Milling Process
At Organic Flour Mills we source all our grain as locally as we can, and only buy organic. We mill the grain as needed when orders come in, so it is always fresh with a shelf life of more than 5 months. Our three mills are Zentrofan cyclone mills, unlike those used in most industrial and conventional milling.
Zentrofan mills, use the cyclone design to impact the organic grain against the wall of the mill, thus cooling it as it breaks down so that it is not adversely heated. In this way the nutriments of the organic whole grain are retained in the flour. We have two separate milling rooms – one for gluten flour, and the other for gluten-free flour. The gluten flours include wheat, rye and spelt. The gluten-free flours are buckwheat, brown rice, millet, and sorghum. We bag and label the freshly milled flour as required, on site, ready for shipping.
Organic Flour Mills sell both the whole grain and the flour of organic wheat, rye, spelt, buckwheat and rice, as well as our milled millet and sorghum flours. We produce only organic whole-grain, not refined flours, which strip away the bran and germ. Our Zentrofan cyclone mills make the finest wholegrain flours possible – try it and see for yourself!
