    I’ve been baking bread at home for more than two years, sourdough and also yeasted breads. I’ve just bought your wholemeal stoneground flour and I was wondering if you could give me some advice on how to use it to bake a sourdough loaf.
    Would it be too tricky to bake a 100% wholemeal sourdough loaf or should I mix it with other strong flour?
    For sourdough loaves I usually do foldings instead of kneading.
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Piclunch

    I asked our baking experts and got this reply:
    There are a lot of variants – dependant on what style of loaf, climate, texture, how much sourdough added
    (or polish starter) and crumb expectation.

    Typically a straight 100% Stoneground Meal will give you a dense loaf.
    Would suggest 90/10 ( 10% White Flour ) to make up 100%
    Would fold at least twice – three times ideal.

    Hope this helps. Let us know!

    Is Organic Stoneground Wholegrain Plain Flour (kialla Pure Foods) wholemeal flour?

    Hi Veronica
    wholegrain flour is milled with minimal processing, usually via stoneground milling (but not always – it will say on the packet if it is stoneground). The difference between wholegrain and wholemeal is that wholemeal is usually milled into white flour then has the meal/bran added back in. The reason for doing it this way is that it creates a smoother flour, which is appropriate for certain products.
    We don’t do this for our retail products, however we do offer wholemeal to bakers as a bulk product.
    Wholegrain contains more of the whole grain and has undergone less processing.

    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.

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

    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.
