Organic Sifted Marquis Wheat Flour
We're so excited to offer this special wheat variety in limited quantities. Marquis Wheat is a close relative to Red Fife but this crop is higher in protein and makes for exceptional bread baking. It was the bread wheat of choice in the early 1900's.
Marquis blends the strength and performance of our Sifted Red Spring with the deep flavour of Red Fife. It also is lower in the allergenic component of gluten than modern wheats. Which means it performs very well in bread baking but is easier for people with gluten sensitivity to digest.
Grain type: Organic Marquis Wheat

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.
We recommend storing our fresh flours in the fridge or freezer to maintain freshness. New to our flour or looking for more resources? Read our Beginner's Guide to Flourist Flour here.

Great for pizza
This an amazing flour. We make pizza at home every Friday and love the results we get with this flour. It adds a great depth of flavour to the dough. I follow the pizza dough recipe from the Mozza cookbook. I've gotten excellent results with all the Flourist wheat flours, but the Marquis ones are definitely the favourite. Had the best results with the following ratio: 18 oz. sifted Marquis wheat 8 oz. whole grain Marquis wheat 3/4 oz. rye flour Excellent experience ordering from Flourist. Just placed another order to replenish my supply!
So glad I tried this flour. It is so tasty. Will be ordering more very soon.
I have only made one boule so far, but I think it’s a very good one.
We just made our first pizza dough with this flour, was great!
Thank you for this flour, I was able to make my first sourdough bread in a long time,no allergic side effects .Thank you. Just was not able to find and claim my first order rebate.
