Soft White Spring Wheat

Overview (Has Gluten)

Less common than winter wheat counterparts, soft white spring wheat is mostly grown in the eastern United States and in California. Unlike winter wheat, spring wheat grows continually from planting in the spring until harvest in late summer to early fall. The berries from this wheat have less protein and more complex carbohydrates than the hard wheat, which makes its flour better suited for pancakes, waffles, muffins, cakes, pastries, and cookies. Generally speaking, whole grain flour milled from this wheat most closely approximates the density and flavor of what we generally know as “white flour.”

Shelf life in a moisture free, airtight container can be 20 years plus, depending on temperature.

High in protein and Dietary Fiber, soft white spring wheat is also high in Manganese and Phosphorus minerals, which are necessary for the body to function properly. The high levels of protein in soft wheat are directly correlated to increased gluten, so those with celiac disease or intolerance should avoid baked items made with soft white wheat. 

Note: Weight of a cup (or partial cup) of flour varies depending upon whether it is lightly sprinkled into a measuring cup or compacted. Most recipe measurements are based on sifted flour as a way to arrive at more uniform measurement.

Gluten Content & Allergen Information

While ‘soft’ wheat flour tends to have lower amounts of gluten in it, it still consists of gluten. So if you have Celiac disease, you should avoid this product. If you are sensitive to gluten, depending on the level of sensitivity, you may be able to use this product. Those with wheat allergies should also avoid using this. Inspect each package individually to make sure it was not packaged in a facility where allergy-causing nuts were present.

“We love the mill! We use it every day for things from bread, to pastry and it is phenomenal. The biggest selling point for me was the fineness since that would mean we can really do some great pastry with it in addition to bread. It definitely has been great!"
