AVAILABLE IN: 4 gallon/23 lb. long-term storage bucket sealed in re-sealable Mylar
This is a great all around multi-purpose wheat….A solid performer for quick breads… but versatile enough to be used by the Home Baker for whole wheat white breads because of its 13.9% protein content. (See the pictures of our simple whole wheat bread, ie just the flour, water, sugar and salt doing the work — no dough enhancers etc.) Probably our most versatile wheat across the spectrum of applications…
Like all our wheats, it has been lab-tested for it’s excellent bread-making qualities and protein content, and also to insure it is PURE… free of 210 chemicals! Our wheat is ideal for bread-making flour, or course-ground for cereal, or sprouted to add to salads. Wheat provides a high fiber, nutrient dense basic carbohydrate. White wheat generally has a more mild flavor than does the red, so it’s often a favorite for making traditional sandwich loaves. It’s also awesome for a milder flavor of sourdough.
(And if you’re making bread… be sure to add our VITAL WHEAT GLUTEN to your cart for the best rise, elasticity, and moistness for your bread, and to keep it fresh longer!)
Try sprouting! Sprouting wheat berries improves the nutrient profile resulting in significantly higher protein, vitamins and enzymes. Also, the complex starches are converted into natural sugars…thus lowering the glycemic index, slowing digestion keeping the blood sugar levels stable for longer. This wheat has a 90% or higher germination rate if you intend to plant it.
FOOD STORAGE RECOMMENDATION: Wheat, the “staff of life,” is the foundation component of your storage program. Studies recommend 300-400 lbs of GRAINS per adult/per year as part of a balanced subsistence diet (this includes wheat, oats, rice, pasta, and corn meal). It’s good to have a variety, of course, but because most bread flours are made from wheat many sources recommend up to 200 lbs of wheat per adult per year. (For gluten-intolerant individuals, our Oat Groats and Rice make wonderful flour). Our 4-gallon heavy-duty stackable square buckets are strongly recommended for storage purposes!! They are lined with air-tight Mylar bags* and have Oxygen Pack inserts to keep them fresh, delicious, and pest-free for 30 years!

If you have any questions please call and we will be so happy to help!
*Re-Sealable (so… use it up as you go!)
The Mylar is heat-sealed (which makes the bag re-sealable). The sealed Mylar will stay air-tight if it’s not punctured. Because it is re-sealable you can snip a corner off the bag, pour out as much product as you’ll use in the next few months, then quickly* re-seal the Mylar and send your food back into long-term storage. The oxygen pack should continue to do its job as long as you re-seal the Mylar as quickly as possible. IMPORTANT: If your bag is left open for more than 30 minutes, you will want to toss in a new oxygen pack before re-sealing to ensure long-term freshness. If you have opened and re-sealed multiple times, and want to store the remainder for many years, you will want to put in a new oxygen pack.
