Organic Whole Khorasan Flour
Our organic whole khorasan flour is made by ''La Milanaise'' in Quebec from organic khorasan wheat. Its gluten, which is different from wheat’s gluten, makes it great for baking.
What makes organic khorasan flour so special? Its light orange color and its butter and hazelnut taste, almost sweet, but without bitterness. Khorasan wheat contains 20-40% more protein than conventional wheat. It also contains fiber, iron, zinc, vitamins B2, B3 and E, phosphorus and magnesium.
In recipe, this flour will absorb more liquid then an whole wheat flour, since the gluten is different, it is better to mix less the dough because the dough will have a tendency to collapse and become really sticky at the end of the mixing.
