Store-Bought or Fresh Ground Flour?

| 3/6/2019 11:08:00 AM

Early in my bread-baking efforts I wanted to answer this question. Since every baker has different goals, there’s no one “right” answer. 

Certainly, if taking time to grind your own grain would stall or even end your bread-baking activities, use the milled flours you are able to purchase. With all our buying options — in-store, online, direct from growers, etc. — it’s generally not difficult to obtain quality flour for your bread.

And with online purchase options, there’s certainly a wide range of brands and flour types at our fingertips.

Here’s a summary of advantages for both purchasing milled flour and making your own!
