Only logged in customers who have purchased this product may leave a review.

This heritage hard red spring wheat began in the fields of France in the 1800’s and was the primary wheat used in the French boulangerie for decades. It is a strong bread wheat with a protein level of 15% protein. As bread bakes, the aroma carries hints of cinnamon. The flavour is mildly nutty.

It is exceptional for crusty French style yeast breads. But it can be equally marvellous in cookies, pizza crust, and sourdough breads, or pretzels.

The natural sugars of the wheat berry that remain in this freshly milled flour add beautiful aroma while bread bakes and create exceptional caramelization of the crust. Your bread won’t just smell and taste divine, it will look gorgeous too. No wonder Rouge de Bordeaux was so loved in France.

Wheat berries can stay fresh for about 2-4 years when stored in a cool, dry location. For even longer shelf life, store in the freezer. Whenever you mill, you will produce fully fresh, nutrient rich flour. And as a bonus, 1 cup of wheat berries becomes about 2 cups of flour, thus saving on valuable storage space.
