At 1847 Stone Milling, we believe that the whole berry is where all the good stuff is! That’s why we make sure to use the entire berry during our milling process, leaving in all the nutritious germ, endosperm and some bran. We don’t believe in taking any shortcuts, so our flour is made by milling the whole grain, making super delicious whole wheat flours. Specifically, our “run of the mill whole wheat flour” is packed with all the good stuff like fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. And for those who want to take it to the next level, you can even mill your own grain at home and create your own unique flour blend. We are so excited to bring you the freshest and most nutritious flour. At 1847 Stone Milling we love nothing more than making delicious and nutritious flour for you to enjoy!

Whole grains are the ultimate superfood! They’ve got it all – bran, germ, and endosperm – which means they’re packed with essential nutrients like fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Plus, the fiber in whole grains helps keep our digestive system running smoothly and may even lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. And let’s not forget all the other amazing nutrients like B vitamins, iron, zinc, and magnesium. Plus, whole grains contain antioxidants and phytochemicals that have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. Eating a diet rich in whole grains not only tastes delicious but it’s also linked to lower risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer. Plus, it may help with weight management and overall digestion. So go ahead, enjoy your whole grains and feel good about it!

Wheat contains several naturally-occurring vitamins, including:

  1. Vitamin B1 (thiamine): essential for energy metabolism and the proper functioning of the nervous system.
  2. Vitamin B2 (riboflavin): important for growth and red blood cell production.
  3. Vitamin B3 (niacin): essential for energy metabolism and the proper functioning of the nervous system.
  4. Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid): important for the synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters.
  5. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine): essential for protein metabolism and the formation of red blood cells.
  6. Vitamin B9 (folate): important for cell growth and the formation of red blood cells.
  7. Vitamin E: an antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage.
  8. Vitamin K: important for blood clotting and bone health.

Gluten sensitivities

It is possible that gluten sensitivity may be a sensitivity to refined flours rather than gluten itself. Refined flour, also known as white flour, is made by removing the bran and germ from the wheat kernel, leaving only the endosperm. This process not only removes a significant portion of the grain’s nutritional value, but also removes the gluten-containing parts of the grain.
When the gluten-containing parts of the grain are removed, the remaining flour is often enriched with synthetic vitamins and minerals. This process can also change the structure of the gluten, making it harder for the body to digest.
Additionally, refined flours are often combined with other additives such as preservatives, emulsifiers, and other ingredients, which can cause inflammation in the gut and lead to symptoms associated with gluten sensitivity.

1847 Stone Milling does not and will never make refined flours because your health is of the utmost importance to us!
