Native Purple Wheat Flour (12.5kg)


Originating in Ethiopia, this grain contains anthocyanins which contributes to its natural purple colour. Anthocyanins are a natural anti-oxidant. Now grown in Co. Kilkenny, this wheat is milled using the traditional stone grinding methods to yield a flavoursome wholemeal flour. Recommended used as a 20% to 30% inclusion with the strong white flour for an interesting twist to fermented breads or for use in soda bread.

Shelf Life

Kells does its best to deliver flours with a long a ‘best before’ life as possible. The actual best before on a flour can vary depending on when the flour was milled before the order was placed. Kells guarantees at least 1/3rd of the full best before shelf life of a flour given at the time of milling. To find out more about the minimum best before shelf life you can expect on flours from this webshop and what the ‘best before’ actually means please open our ‘Questions Answered Here’ section at the bottom of each shop page ( ). Normally Kells supply flours with a ‘best before’ life far longer than the minimum guaranteed.
