I've been baking with King Arthur Flour ever since I started using a bread machine. We have sampled several of their flours, and the bread comes out just right every time. For this review, King Arthur Flour sent me a 2 lbs. bag of their new 100% Organic White Whole Wheat Flour. This flour is certified USDA organic, and contains no bleach or preservatives. I made a 1.5 pound loaf, using the express bake recipe for traditional-style white bread. Pretty soon, the delicious aroma of bread wafted through the house. In less than an hour, voila - the loaf was ready.
Compared to the same recipe using white flour, this bread was darker and more dense. The look and taste were unmistakably whole wheat but without the slightly bitter taste that sometimes comes with whole wheat flour. This type of flour is milder and bakes lighter than traditional whole wheat.We found the bread made with white whole wheat more filling compared to white bread, probably because white whole wheat contains more fiber than white flour. For me, it has a completely different texture and flavor. Everyone at home loved it! In addition to baking bread, white whole wheat flour can be used to replace white flour in other recipes as well. We will definitely use the organic white whole wheat flour again!
