Hard white wheat is lighter in color than traditional red wheat and produces a very light, mild-flavored bread.
Hard white wheat is high in gluten, a protein that stretches to trap the air bubbles given off by yeast within the bread dough, so it is best suited for making yeast-leavened or sourdough breads.
The flour is milled using an impact mill. The mill itself is entirely mechanical and consists of small hammers rotating at high speed in an enclosed chamber. These hammers strike the wheat in mid-air with such impact that the wheat is immediately shattered into flour. Impact milling does this at an average temperature of only 94 degrees F (34 C) . High heat destroys the vital nutrients of the grain and tends to produce rancidity. Hammer milling produces an excellent quality, nutritious whole wheat flour, at low temps.
