Organic NZ Wheat Grain
Organic NZ Wheat Grain
NZ-grown Wheat grain
...Wheat is a popular grain (also called wheat seed, kernels, groats, or berries) that can be sprouted, or wheat can be cooked and eaten like rice in savoury or sweet dishes, and wheat grain is milled into flour. NOTE: We do NOT add any folic acid to our wheat flour! At Organic Flour Mills we choose only organic New Zealand grown wheat, certified BioGro. It has not been sprayed or heated and is therefore good for sprouting. We have been to the farm where it is grown in the South Island, NZ, and can vouch for it ourselves :)
Wheat’s botanical name is Triticum aestivum. Like all whole grains, the wheat kernel has 3 parts: the outer bran, the inner germ, and the endosperm layer between the bran and germ. Whole wheat contains all 3 parts of the grain, which are retained in the milled flour, unlike so-called "wholemeal" flour, which has the wheat bran and wheat germ stripped away, and a percentage of bran added back in.
The wheat bran provides important B vitamins, essential minerals and protein.
The wheat germ provides healthy fats, vitamin E and more B vitamins.
The wheat endosperm provides carbs and additional protein. The main protein in wheat is gluten, which can cause intolerances in some people, but enables bread and baking to rise well.
NOTE: We do NOT add synthetic folic acid to our organic wheat flour - there is enough folic acid naturally occurring in the vitamin B9 in the bran and germ in the wheat grain that is retained in the flour. The NZ mandate does not include organic flour!
