Bob’s Red Mill Organic Whole Wheat Pastry Flour is 100% stone-ground, whole grain flour made from certified organic, U.S.-grown soft white wheat. The whole wheat berries are milled with the nutritious bran, germ and endosperm all intact. Many people ask how whole wheat pastry flour is different from whole wheat flour. The answer is simple: whole wheat pastry flour is milled from soft white wheat, whereas regular whole wheat flour is milled from hard red wheat. It has a lower protein content than regular whole wheat flour and it makes wonderfully tender whole grain baked goods. Our Organic Whole Wheat Pastry Flour is a good source of dietary fiber and minerals including magnesium and phosphorus, and provides 4 grams of protein per serving.
