We are big fans of local ingredients and organic is preferred when it fits our volunteer’s budgets. We receive questions on if our items are whole grain. Here’s the scoop.
Our Honey Oat Sandwich Loaves are made from 50% Whole Grain Bread Flour and 50% High Extraction flour. A few exceptions exist on the blend depending on local market conditions. For example, in Hailey Idaho we use locally milled even higher extraction Hillside Grain flour.
Our sandwich loaf is considered a whole grain loaf but it is really about 75% whole grain due to the blend of flours.
What about the Energy Cookie? The energy cookie is a blend of 6 different whole grain flours. Whole grain pastry flour, whole grain oat flour, whole grain rye flour, oatmeal, whole grain chickpea flour, and almond meal – the whole almond.
