BioWheat – Rye – 12.5kg

BIO-WHEAT™ Rye flour is milled from the grains of rye. Rye flour is high in bran and soluble fibre content, but low in gluten. For that reason, it won’t produce a well risen loaf of bread. This can be remedied by replacing some of the rye flour in the recipe with one of the wheat flours in the BIO-WHEAT™ range. Rye flour has a distinctive tangy taste and coarse texture. It can be used to prepare rye bread or traditional sourdough bread.

Description

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. BIO-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. BIO-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. We 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.
