Look at the loaves above. I just pulled the loaves in the left-hand photo out of the oven. I baked the loaves on the right about two weeks ago. I used the exact same process for each set: Long autolyse, 24-hour bulk ferment, 24-hour final proof. The difference? The loaves on the right used 30% King Arthur 100% Whole Wheat flour, while the loaves on the right used 30% Azure Standard 100% Whole Wheat Flour. The Azure Standard flour is Unifine milled, so it’s A LOT finer. The KA flour is pretty smooth, but you can definitely feel the bran particles in it.

Just like TC Farm's meat, these grains are a 'no shortcut' product. Don't worry about bleaching or bromating or synthetic pesticides (we privately test to ensure there is no glyphosate) ... You won't find any of those 'gotcha' things found in other brands to make food cheaper with hidden costs.
I am SO giddy about this flour! In my previous post, I sang the praises for the Azure Market Organics 100% Whole White Wheat Flour and now, I’m even MORE giddy about this bread flour. It not only goes through the Unifine process, Azure also performs an extra sifting stage to remove about 10% of the sharp bran particles.
It’s a rainy Saturday morning and the Blue Scorcher Bakery, in Astoria, Ore., is bursting with business. The 12-year-old co-op is cranking out organic scones, cardamom rolls, oatcakes and many other treats to a line of devoted, local customers.

In a deeply beige conference room at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco, baker Craig Ponsford, founder of Artisan Bakers in Sonoma, pauses dramatically to survey the remarkably rapt group before him. His audience is members of the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) attending a panel discussion called “The Revolution in Local Grains,” and he’s talking about the ingredients he uses at his two-year-old San Rafael bakery, Ponsford’s Place.

The Unifine mill takes a different approach. The wheat or other grain is blown into a high-speed flywheel, which pulverizes the grain against the rough surface of the container. After one pass, the exploded material blows into a sifting system, producing whole grain flour with a very fine particle size.

WSU Industrial Design Clinic team updates flour mill produced 60 years ago
Almost 60 years ago, the Washington State College Division of Industrial Research engineered a dry, one-pass whole grain milling system. This semester, seven Washington State University Industrial Design Clinic students brought the Unifine mill up to speed with modern technology.
