BioWheat – Barley –
BIO-WHEAT™ Barley Flour is milled from the grains of barley. Barley flour is crammed with nutrition. It is a whole grain high in both soluble fibre, known to reduce cholesterol and insoluble fibre that keeps the digestive tract healthy. This flour has a rich nutty taste, but is low in gluten. We therefore recommend swapping a third of the flour in your recipes with our Barley Flour.
When visiting the Fourie farm, one is reminded of a bygone era where life seemed to pass by slower. This 5th generation family business has become our way of life. Leaving a legacy is what this product is all about. We pride ourselves on producing a natural and healthy product from the premium quality wheat the Overberg has to offer.
nBIO-WHEAT™ flour is stone ground; a process in which the wheat is ground slowly between the stones without exposing it to excessive heat, thereby retaining the nutritional vitamins, wheatgerm and fibre. In essence, stone ground promises nothing added or removed.
nBIO-WHEAT™ flour is produced with wheat cultivated by means of biological farming methods. We apply crop rotation to replenish the soil by recycling our wheat crops with legume pastures. After harvesting, more organic matter is left in the soil to break down into natural humus. This reduces the need for chemical fertilizer, and in addition less pesticides are administered: pests do not like a healthy crop.
nWe believe strongly in farming for the future by caring for the soil today. We understand that in the process of cultivating our crops we need to consider people first. Their health and well-being is our focus. BIO-WHEAT™ is the natural, healthy choice… It’s about a way of life.
