Graina Bulk Food Store: Organic Flour and Sugar
Flour is one of those ingredients that everyone has in their cupboard. Whether it be plain flour, self-raising flour, gluten-free flour or chickpea flour it is a staple ingredient in most households. Flour is used in so many ways for both sweet and savoury foods. It can be used to bake cakes, pastries and biscuits, used to make bread, thicken sauce or coat meat or vegetables before crumbing them.
Flour although is known to be only made from wheat can come in a range of different forms. Flour does not have to contain gluten or wheat for that matter and different flours are better suited to making different foods. Organic gluten-free flours include tapioca, chickpea, buckwheat, arrowroot and almond flour and are a great alternative for coeliacs or people with gluten sensitivities. Flours made from alternative grains can provide added protein, fibre and minerals and can form a lighter option to whole-wheat flours.
Another staple ingredient in most house-holds is sugar. Sugar get a bad rap but doesn’t have to be bad for you! Sugar, and the right type of sugar, is good in moderation as we need glucose to for our bodies to function properly and for our cells to work adequately. However too much sugar is known to contribute to different types of health problems. Fortunately, there are alternative options such as coconut sugar which is a sweet, rich and dark sugar made from coconuts. Coconut nectar is also available and makes a great alternative to sugar as it is sticky and sweet.
