Makes lovely pastry and good in cakes
We like to use this in pastry and cakes as it adds to the overall flavour of baked goods but isn't as heavy as wholemeal. My husband is the pastry chef (well for shortcrust - we buy in flakey!) and for an 8oz - sorry for old measures - mix, 6 ozs of this to 2 of rice flour for an exceptianally light pasty, which is very forgiving when rolling out
Ok, so this won't turn our pancakes or chocolate chip cookies into a health food but it should provide a bit more fiber. Having read Seafood's review below and then visited Marriage's website, I surmise that as 81% brown flour, this will have had 19% of the whole grain removed. I also understand that, by law, all UK flour which is not wholemeal has iron added to it (among other things).
Put in biscuits crumble for better taste light and not heavy
Mostly plain white flour,no Wholemeal listed
Having worked in food industry I know wholemeal-wheat flour if added would & should be listed as wholemeal wheat in the ingredients list.. Looking at the ingredients list of this product,there is no mention of Wholemeal wheat flour, only listed wheat flour which means majority of this product,probably 95% or more of it is very likely white wheat flour( plain white flour) since in the food industry Plain Wheat flour is labelled as simply Wheat flour so this product if it contains any wholemeal flour at all,probably contains only a tiny amount of wholemeal added. I noticed in the ingredients list,iron is added which gives white flour a brownish tinge so the flour may appear brown compared to plain white flour but unless the ingredients list lists Wholemeal wheat flour as one of the ingredients,I personally do not trust that this product is much different to any other plain white flour. Otherwise wholemeal would have been listed in the ingredients list. I find this very misleading as the description implies this product contains a decent amount of wholemeal & therefore a healthier choice!
Great brown flour
Glad to see this available. It's tasty, organic and not too heavy so it bakes up well. My sourdough starter likes it too.
Finally a lighter wholemeal flour
I love love love how light and fluffy everything you make with this flour is while still having more wholemeal than normal plain flour. I’ve tried mixing in brown plain flour along with white in recipes before but the result is always more stodgy and dense - this flour is an amazing substitute, resulting in things as light and as fluffy as with plain white flour. The only thing is, as it is more wholemeal than plain flour, the same pancakes etc will definitely have you feeling fuller for long, but I guess that’s also potentially a bonus.
