Baking with Tropical Traditions: Organic Whole Wheat Bread Flour Review and Giveaway (Ends 12/1) CLOSED

Monday, November 22, 2010 Posted by Dina N

I love the taste and texture of whole wheat bread. We stopped buying white bread years ago. Right now, my family is getting used to eating whole wheat pasta. I like whole wheat pizza, too but my husband drew the line there, and the kids followed. 


I've been experimenting with various whole wheat flours when baking at home. Tropical Traditions offer Organic Whole Wheat Bread Flour that I wanted to try out. This flour is stoneground, made from hard red spring wheat that is USDA certified organic. Great River Organic Milling, the manufacturer, uses natural granite stones for milling their flours.  The flour retains all the germ and lightly sifts off the bran. 


I used the flour to bake some bread in my bread machine, and it came out thick and hearty, very flavorful and simply delicious. Next on my list is making some pizza dough out of it to try and get my family to like whole wheat pizza. Then maybe get even bolder with whole wheat cookies, brownies or muffins... 


Deal Alert 
Right now, Tropical Traditions Organic Stone-Ground Whole Wheat Bread Flour is on sale at $8.84 for a 5 lbs bag.  If you decide to buy this product or anything else from Tropical Traditions, as a first-time customer you can get a FREE Virgin Coconut Oil book with purchase. Find out all about coconut oil and its uses! Just use code 5251001 in the Referred by a Friend section and the book will be added to your order at no charge.

    The Organic Maple Syrup caught my eye.
    I read up on it, and I also believed all maple syrups are organic. Now I know they are not.
