BIO-WHEAT™ flour is stone ground; a process in which the wheat is ground slowly between the stones without exposing it to excessive heat, thereby retaining the nutritional vitamins, wheatgerm and fibre. In essence, stone ground promises nothing added or removed.
BIO-WHEAT™ flour is produced with wheat cultivated by means of biological farming methods. We apply crop rotation to replenish the soil by recycling our wheat crops with legume pastures. After harvesting, more organic matter is left in the soil to break down into natural humus. This reduces the need for chemical fertilizer, and in addition less pesticides are administered: pests do not like a healthy crop.
We believe strongly in farming for the future by caring for the soil today. We understand that in the process of cultivating our crops we need to consider people first. Their health and well-being is our focus. BIO-WHEAT™ is the natural, healthy choice… It’s about a way of life.
‘Two thousand years ago, the Essenes were sprouting their wheat – and for good reason! Sprouting or, in the case of oats and nuts, activating, makes these foods far more digestible and nutritious. Grains and seeds have a built-in defence system that makes it hard for us to tolerate them. On top of that, anti-nutrients called phytates inhibit our ability to absorb the vitamins and minerals in the grain, including the food we eat with it. When we sprout/activate, we neutralise most of these anti-nutrients, transforming grains and nuts into readily digestible superfoods. So that is what we do!’
