Organic Sprouted Sifted Red Fife Flour is a heritage (non-hybrid) variety of wheat. It is light, delicious, digestible and versatile. It has about an 80% extraction, meaning some of the larger bran pieces are sifted out for a lighter taste and texture.

Red Fife is Canada’s oldest wheat, and its origins are a bit of an urban legend. The story goes that a man stole a handful of Ukrainian wheat kernels and brought them across the Atlantic to give to his friend, Ontario farmer David Fife. Only one stalk survived to grow what became Canada’s primary wheat until the end of the 19th century. Most wheats in Canada today are descendants of red fife.

Why sprouted flour?
Our red fife goes through a slow soaking and sprouting period to “pre-digest” the grain, then it’s carefully dried and finely milled with nothing added or removed. This ancient, natural process helps you to better digest and absorb nutrients from whole grains. It also enhances the taste by reducing bitterness (saponin) and bringing out red fife’s natural flavour. Whole grain flours tend to be dense, but sprouting results in lighter, fluffier textured baked goods.

How to use sprouted red fife flour
Sprouted sifted red fife flour is a great multipurpose flour and works well in breads, cookies, muffins, pancakes, pastries and more. Sprouted flour tends to be thirsty, so you may need to use more liquid than you would with non-sprouted flour. We also offer lots of delicious recipes on our recipe journal, you can find them here.
