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
Application: Bread, Pastry, Pizza Dough
Origin: Vonda, SK
Farmer: Marc Loiselle
Extraction Rate: 80%
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.

Made my first loaf using only this flour - love the nutty flavour! Looking forward to having it back in stock.
Favourite flour to date!
I cannot rave enough about how much I love the taste of this flour! The best tasting breads! I've also made cake and today, waffles which tasted amazing! Would love to see Flourist recipes that show substitution ratios for this flour, and a note for which flours the recipe can work with without modifications. Looking forward to when this will be back in stock! We love you all at Flourist, thank you for all that you do for us in the community :)
Hi Anna, thank you so much for your kind review!! I love your idea about substitution ratios. We will think of the best way to deliver this information. Thanks again! Janna
Wanted to try a different bread flour
I really liked the flavour, but I found that the very high moisture content in this flour made my first attempt far too wet. Will try again and adjust the recipe accordingly
Marquis Wheat Flour
A great bread flour with exceptional flavour and a predictable rise! I mixed it with Sifted Red Spring for the first couple of loaves, until I got a feel for it. I would definitely recommend it! Almost time to re-order some more.
Lovely flour for Sourdough bread
This flour is easy to work with and easier for me to digest
