Hi Lika & Shane
that’s interesting that these small beans are difficult to find even in Japan. The problem for us in providing small beans is that we don’t have a way to sort the smaller from the larger bean. I would think it was done by hand and eye traditionally. We use different machinery due to the volume of our product. We start with screenings where smaller sized things fall through the screen but the small beans are not small enough to be drafted off with this method. Then the beans move onto the gravity tables which works on weight and removes small stones and heavy things but even smaller mung beans have similar gravity.
To invest in the right equipment, we’d want to have a good measure of demand. I suggest that you start asking your favourite retailers (usually the organic specialty shops) and tell others to start asking for it. I have flagged your interest to the product team. It also needs to come from the retailers/ manufacturers.

    I never make a bad loaf of bread now, since changing over to Kialla flour… I can’t get over the superior quality of your product. I have bought some for everyone in my family.

    We’ve found that Kialla popcorn is the best – it pops so much better than other popcorns, and it tastes great. Our kids love it.

    I truly like the transparency and traceability that Kialla Pure Foods offers. I’m actually able to see which farm grew the wheat milled into my 10kg bag of flour. This really sealed the deal for me. And I feel that Kialla sets themselves apart in this sense.

    We’ve tried several other pancake mixes but nothing comes close to yours!

  • Lisa, owner & baker at Sweet Tooth Noosa

    Of all the brands of flour I have used Kialla is by far the BEST!

  • Meredith J. Home Baker

    Kialla is the best flour I’ve ever used – and that includes some great US flours. Please keep milling forever!!

  • Jacqui Mead, Consumer

    We’ve been using Kialla’s products for approximately seven years now, making the change to Organic Spelt Flour following the discovery that my son had a wheat and dairy intolerance. I have found that our whole family’s health has improved.
