FLAKED vs. GROUND MILLING
121108 Just Starting in GRAIN milling and am trying to make a decision re which milling machine to buy. Considering money and popularity, I am leaning to K-TEC for $175.
My concern is over the practice of FLAKING. The Family Grain Mill (made in Germany) offers the ability to GRIND grains and to FLAKE them using a unique attachment. Flaking is advised for cereals.
I am fond of OAT BRAN cereal daily. Have the hope of buying Oat Groats and FLAKING them to get to get the BRAN ... I suppose I'll get the endosperim and germ of the Oat also - - and that, hopefully will make the nutrition even better. I would like to try FLAKING with Buckwheat Groats and maybe even with Rice.
Can anyone advise me - - am I misunderstanding FLAKING; and should I just go for milling wheat berries with the K-TEC? Also, is there a better way to process Oat Groats and Buckwheat Groats.
I am a "nube", but AM TOTALLY COMMITTED to home milling.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated
