How is Flour Made?

Most wheat flour is made by grinding, sifting and bleaching wheat until it becomes a fine, white flour.

We could not have any bread, cookies, cakes or many other foods if we didn’t have flour.

Wheat

Flour is a food made by grinding wheat or other cereal grains.  When we speak of flour, we usually mean flour that is made from kernels of wheat.

To make flour, the miller first cleans the wheat to remove any dirt.

Next, he grinds the wheat between steel rollers and sifts the ground-up wheat between screens to separate the starchy inner part from the rest of the kernel.

The flour is rolled and sifted several times to make the fine flour that most people prefer.

Finally, the yellowish flour is treated with a harmless bleaching agent to make it white.  During the milling process, much of the vitamins and others nutrients in the wheat are lost.

When you see a loaf of bread labeled  “enriched” it means the manufacturer has replaced some of the vitamins lost in milling the flour. – Dick Rogers

  2. Flour is powdered cereal grains, roots or seeds. Flour is made by milling flour, which means to grind the grain between steel wheels or stones. When you purchase stone-ground flour, this means the flour was milled specifically between stones. White flour is simply flour that has been bleached with a whitening agent. Semolina flour is coarse flour made from durum wheat which is rougher than wheat used for white flour. Does this Spark an idea?
