ORGANIC HEIRLOOM PASTRY FLOUR (Treasure Life Farms)
Ingredients: 90%wholegrain heirloom Pitic (soft wheat) flour
Production: Many of the heirloom grains have not been grown for over 100 years or have become almost extinct before Ben and Claudia at Treasure Life Farms decided to follow their commitment to biodiversity and sustainability. On their certified organic farm, they cultivate their crops in the rich alluvial soil in a "rotation and fallow" method, carefully rotating seedbeds, ensuring sufficient nutrient buildup through cover cropping.
Grains are allowed to ripen at their own pace and are then harvested, cleaned, and stored in wooden granaries on their farm - all contributing to superior taste and nutritional value. Flours are freshly milled in small batches on a centrifugal mill which pulverizes the grains so finely that it requires no sifting and without any temperature increase, preserving optimal nutrient density of the flour. This pastry flour has been minimally sifted in order to obtain a lighter quality flour.
Qualities: this organic, high-quality gluten heirloom flour, is rich in soluble and insoluble fiber, protein, complex carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients:
- High-quality gluten: not all gluten is created equal. Since most people have been exposed to GMO gluten but not been sensitized to the ancient genetic composition of heirloom grains, even gluten sensitive individuals often have excellent tolerance to these heirloom grains.
- Heirloom or heritage plant varieties are open-pollinated varieties that have been cultivated and passed down sometimes for thousands of years. They have evolved over time by natural or human selection exhibiting superior taste and complex aromas as well as a diverse mineral profile and higher vitamin contents. They also play a crucial role in protecting our continued food supply through preserving genetic diversity.
Common use: This pastry flour makes wonderfully tender baked goods. Use it for pie crusts, pastries, biscuits, scones, pancakes, brownies, cookies, and cakes. It is suitable for any recipe that calls for baking soda or baking powder.
Storage: keeps well in a sealed container in a cool, dry, and dark location

Good flour, faulty bag
The flour is delicious great - fresh and tasty, but the bag it came in was sealed shut so the re-sealable component was useless.
Organic Heirloom Pastry Flour
I actually purchased both the pastry and the all-purpose flour, but so far have only used the all-purpose. Very happy with my purchase. Received it in two days, even though I live quite rural. I am thrilled to have discovered your company. You make it so easy to purchase quality, organic, bulk products at a great price.
Makes the best pie crust!!
This flour makes the best pie/quiche crust.. LOVE IT! I'll be keeping it stocked at my house.
The best pastry flour
I was looking for a long time for this type of pastry flour. I like true sourdough baking for pastry and have been experimenting with different heirloom grains and it is always a challenge. I dislike modern wheat flour. It is very sticky and I don't like to use it in my baking. This pastry flour is different. It is easy to make a dough with it using eggs and butter, and with a sourdough that I have nurtured for several years and live it overnight. Incredible base for any pastry. No need for yeast, baking powder or any other unpleasant additions. Thanks for producing this incredible four.
