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.

My family, like many, started making sourdough at the beginning of the COVID pandemic.. We live in a remote town and with shortages, our flour choices disappeared. This flour has revived our starter, which made it through and will be one year old soon!
I love this flour! My sourdough loaves are always successful using Flourist Sifted Red Spring Wheat Flour. Not only is the quality and protein content of this flour something to be proud of, but every bag that I open is traceable to the Canadian Farmer who grew it.
The best bread flour! It’s totally worth having shipped to me.
I feel like a real baker now (I thought I did before!) and my sour dough bread (which I was already quite happy with) has gone up several levels in quality and taste! The dough is like silk when I do the stretch and folds. What a pleasure to work with - and the SMELL is amazing. I just ordered 3 more bags! So happy to have discovered Flourist!
Very good. I have so far only used it for -25% of my 75% sourdough, but the feel of the flour is excellent, and I'll be trying it with other kinds of baking too.
