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.

I have incorporated this flour into many of my sourdough recipes (bread, English muffins and cinnamon buns so far) and I am really pleased with the results. I find it makes the dough really nice to work, which isn’t always the case with whole grain flours.
Used in family pastry recipe for our Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pies. The pastry was delicious, much easier to roll, and for the first time my pastry did not separate from the pumpkin pie when cut for serving! Converted!
Your products are wonderful and so is your service. I am a fairly new user and new sourdough baker. I have had great success with your red fife and red spring flour sourdough bread - heritage loaf and whole grain with wheat berries. I am looking forward to trying a number of your recipes. Thank you!
Since creating our sourdough starter at the beginning of April this year, we have purchased your flours. We find that they are high quality and now have a very well established starter. We have, and will continue to purchase all of our flour needs through flourist. We are now purchasing the Red Fife and whole grain red spring wheat flour. Our sourdough bread is now almost perfect. Thank you for your amazing flour.
I bought the starter pack initially and then on my next order got 2 more bags of the sifted red fife flour. Our breads and pies have been so flavourful and the flour is so fresh. I also bought a bread bag which is great keeping our bread fresh and looking pretty sitting in the bag.
