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. New to our flour or looking for more resources? Read our Beginner's Guide to Flourist Flour here.
I love this flour. It makes the best bread and muffins!
The only flour fit for maintaining my starter and making my levain
I so admire the knowledge Flourist is spreading about the importance of good flour, knowing your sources, keeping things fresh! I have been using this flour since the start of my sourdough journey. The quality is unmatched! The packaging is beautifully minimal, and fully compostable. I reuse my bags for freezing my sourdough discard, and composting it when full. Saves our compost bin from being a sticky mess. The sifted Red Spring has just the right amount of goodness to mature my starter as a steady pace that suits my bread schedule. I highly recommend it for this purpose! It's delicious also to bake with!!!
My go-to choice of flour for bread, pasta, dumplings, and more! Can't go wrong with it. Due to its high protein content, the dough becomes really elastic and stretchy.
Great flavour; our go-to flour. Pricey but worth it!
