What is flour made from?

Historically, flours were made from a wide variety of plants, grains, and nuts. Archeologists have even found evidence of flour made from cattail, ferns and other plants on mortars and pestles uncovered at 30,000-year-old encampments in Italy, Russia, and the Czech Republic. While you won’t find more info on those flours here (or most places!), you will learn about a variety of common, gluten-free and ancient grain flours, which can be made using the Lee Household Flour Mill right in your own kitchen.

Each entry describes the history, nutrition and diet compatibility of the different flour types. As you learn about them, you’ll likely want to taste them. Because these flours can be made with the Lee Household Flour Mill, you can mill them fresh whenever you need them. Let the flour adventure begin!
