Flourist Sifted Red Spring Wheat Flour is milled from organically grown Red Spring wheat from Laura, Saskatchewan. This flour is ideal for creating moist, flavourful breads, pastries, and both sweet and savoury loaves. Like our Sifted Red Fife Flour, this Red Spring flour is a perfect replacement for white all purpose flour from the grocery store—more flavourful, more nutritious and freshly milled.
High in protein, Canadian Red Spring wheat is the go-to grain for bread baking flour. Red Spring wheat accounts for the majority of wheat grown in Canada — and has garnered a reputation internationally for its superior milling and baking qualities.
Our hand-crafted Austrian stone mill slowly and gently crushes grain at a low temperature, a process that produces beautiful, aromatic, nutritious and delicious flour.
Our sifted flours are passed through fine screens to remove the larger bran and germ particles leaving beautiful, soft and richly textured flour.
The product bears little resemblance to the typical, highly processed shelf stable flour found on grocery store shelves. You’ll notice the difference right away: the colour is natural and the aroma is unmistakable.
We recommend storing our fresh flours in the fridge or freezer to maintain freshness.

Poor package / care of product
I bought several bags of flour but there was no packing materials - just several bags of flour in a thin over sized box. The package arrive all banged up with the bags of flour tossed all about and flour everywhere. So disappointing especially for a high end product
Hi Cindy! Thank you for your note! As we mentioned in our email, we are terribly sorry you experienced the mishandling of your order. We take great pride in our product and regret that your experience was less than stellar. We hope you'll be back and that the flavour of the flours entices you to come back to us. In the meantime, we have refunded your order in full and will be reviewing our packing policy for our UPS orders to ensure this does not happen again. All the best, Team Flourist
We are presently enjoying our 1st loaf made with your Sifted Red Spring Wheat flour – YUM! Beautiful flavor and texture. Just perfect.
Love this flour!
Just made a couple loaves of sourdough with the Red Spring Wheat last night and some pasta with the "00". Both were fantastic, exceptionally tasty. I can tell we're going to be ordering a lot of your flours! Love what you people are doing! Thank you for the delicious things! Chris
I have been using Flourist flour for my sourdough every week for a couple of months now and oh my! I mean the flavour is just gorgeous! What a difference from store-bought shelf flour! I love your grains and legumes too. Have tried everything basically except for a couple items. Love everything. You guys rock thank you so much!
