Organic Whole Spelt Flour by 'Har Sinai Farm' + Recipe

The Har (i.e. Mount) Sinai Farm, located in Susiya in the south of Israel, both raises sheep in pasture and has a mill driven by millstones. The farm offers a variety of pure, high-quality flours from different types of wheat and organic grains that are grown on the farm.

The grinding with millstones maintains the high nutritional value ​​of the grain thanks to the fact that it does not burn it.

The flour series includes a variety of grains, the most prominent of which are the organic whole wheat flour, 70% organic wheat flour, organic whole spelt flour and 70% organic spelt flour.

Organic Whole Spelt Flour

Spelt flour is considered a health food as it contains a higher percentage of protein as well as a large amount of dietary fiber, minerals and vitamins and a small amount of gluten. Spelt gives a particularly rich flavor and texture to breads. Consumer price 17 NIS.

70% Organic Spelt Flour

70% spelt flour is similar to whole spelt flour, which is very rich in protein, vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber. Thanks to a special grinding process that removes some of the bran in the husk leaving only 70% bran and the spelt germ, the process contributes to preserving the taste and improving the leavening ability. The flour is more airy than wholemeal spelt flour. Consumer price 17 NIS.

Organic Whole Wheat Flour

Wholemeal flour ground with millstones is rich in dietary fiber and contains a variety of essential minerals and vitamins. The flour is made from 100% natural ingredients from the wheat grain. Easy to process, tasty and healthy. Free of chemicals and pesticides. Consumer price: 10 NIS

70% Wheat Flour

70% wheat flour ground by millstones combines the health benefits of whole wheat flour with improved leavening ability. During the grinding process, some of the bran in the husk is separated so that 70% of the bran remains without removing the wheat germ and essential dietary fiber.

The flour is more airy than wholemeal flour, its products are lighter and less dense and the pastries from this flour have a deep hue and a rich taste. Consumer price: 11 NIS.

All flours come in hermetic packages of 1 kg. The flours are available in in select health food stores and also can be ordered ONLINE or by phone at 054-6286258 with delivery to all parts of the country.
