What is Bronze Chief Hard Red Spring Wheat Good For?
Hard red spring wheat is the quintessential grain of classic whole wheat bread; full flavored, wheaty and deep-colored. Hard red spring wheat is high in gluten, a protein that stretches to trap the air bubbles given off by yeast within the bread dough, so it is best suited for making yeast-leavened or sourdough breads.
Bronze Chief hard red spring wheat is comparable to hard red winter wheat.
How the flour is milled
Wheat Montana’s flour is milled using an impact mill. The mill itself is entirely mechanical and consists of small hammers rotating at high speed in an enclosed chamber. These hammers strike the wheat in mid-air with such impact that the wheat is immediately shattered into flour. Impact milling does this at an average temperature of only 94 degrees F (34 C) . High heat destroys the vital nutrients of the grain and tends to produce rancidity. Hammer milling produces an excellent quality, nutritious whole wheat flour, at low temps.
Although this is very good flour, it just doesn’t compare to the taste and nutrition of flour freshly milled in your own kitchen. We highly recommend the Nutrimill grain mill for grinding your own flour from whole wheat berries and other grains. Taste the difference!
About Montana’s Certified Organic Grains
Wheat Montana’s organic wheat is grown on land certified by the State of Montana and does not have any type of fertilizer or other chemicals used. The State of Montana inspects their farm, bins, warehouse, equipment, packaging, etc. and then give it the Certified Organic label. All of Wheat Montana’s grains are NON-GMO (non genetically modified), heirloom seeds.
These grains are also very clean, which is super important when milling your own flour since a small stone in the wheat could easily ruin your grain mill.
