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.

    I wouldn’t be without a supply of this flour. Perfect for sourdough starters. I use a some of my discard in pizza dough and crackers and it has an incredibly rich and nutty flavour. A really great product and super value for money too.

    I love this flour. My sourdough starter has never worked so well as with this flour. It is just awesome! Very happy with this in our sourdough bread. All of my friends baking sourdough bread are now using it too.

    This is great flour. I use it in my starter and in my bread. I have great results with both. It disappears very quickly. Fantastic stuff.

    I just switched to this flour recently, and I am loving it for the weekly sourdough that I bake. I like my sourdough very sour, and I think this flour will get me there. Although I would like to know if it is organic? Many many thanks for this fab product!

      Hi , thanks for your comment. Our Native Wholemeal Rye flour is milled in our artisan flour mill using traditional grindstones. The rye is grown here in Ireland, and is conventional , not organic. We do have organic white and wholemeal wheat flours in our range, but not rye at this stage. Independent feedback like yours is so helpful to bakers not as familiar with our products. Happy baking from all at the Kells team.

    Just want to confirm all of the above. I’d been looking for wholemeal rye flour for a while for my sourdough (mainly pizza) and I’ve never had my base so actively growing.
