So…what happened to the age-old practice of baking with nutritious freshly milled grains in our American culture?!
Well, a dramatic change began to take place in the 1870’s with the advancement of technology in the grain milling industry…
Prior to the 1870’s, grain mills were located close to small towns and folks would purchase freshly milled whole grain flour on an as-needed basis to prepare a variety of nutrient-dense and delicious fresh baked goods. But when advanced milling processes were developed allowing millers to separate the germ, bran, and endosperm from within the flour, the high quality nutrition found in freshly milled whole grains was virtually lost, the general health of the public declined, and the millers were the happy recipients of a windfall of three separate streams of income derived from the new milling process: 1) a very shelf-stable white flour product that was not subject to rancidity as the nutrient-rich vitamin E oil and other important health benefiting aspects found naturally within the germ were removed, 2) the bran, and 3) the germ. Mills could now expand their market by shipping shelf-stable, nutritionally void white flour over long distances without fear of spoilage. They all got rich as the health of Americans dramatically declined!
And that’s where Graceful Grains comes in. We always use freshly milled organic and natural whole grains when baking our fresh bakery products so that our customers can enjoy great health from a variety of great grains!
I hope you will come visit with us at the Graceful Grains booth each Saturday at the Lakeland Downtown Farmers Curb Market from 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.!
To your health!
