Our Strong Wholemeal flour makes fantastic bread. Some people mix it with strong white flour in 50/50 or 60/40 ratio. It also makes a sourdough stater which can then be used to make pizzas or other breads. It is also good for Chapatis. See our recipes on the website all tried and tested by our volunteers!

Course Flour is ideal for Crumbles and Biscuits. It can also be added to our Wholemeal flour to make excellent Holgate Digestive Biscuits or Date Crumble Slices.     

Spelt  is an alternative to wheat however it is a gentle grain for the digestive tract and can strengthen the immune system as well as having many other health benefits. It can be used in the same way as wheat so can replace wheat flour in a recipe or it can be mixed with wheat flour to give a different taste and texture.
