Organic Whole Wheat Pastry Flour is a great healthy alternative to the good ol’ All-Purpose Flour. Due to its low protein content, it is ideal for tender pastries such as cupcakes and biscuits. But what makes it so special and what differs it from White Flour and Whole Wheat Flour? Let’s find out together.
Unlike All-Purpose Flour where bran and germ are taken off, Whole Wheat Pastry Flour is derived from whole wheat grains. In other words, it is less treated and is more nutritionally dense. Contrary to Whole Wheat Flour, which is produced from winter berries, Whole Wheat Pastry Flour is finely-milled by stone-ground method from low-protein soft spring wheat berries. This helps pastries like pies and cakes turn out soft and fluffy.Nutrition Benefits
