High fiber flour mix

Hello

 

I have been using King Arthur flour high fiber flour mix. The mix combines, white bread flour, barley flour and

hi-maize resistant corn starch.  KAF tells me this mix is proprietary. I've gotten a sample of hi-maize and would

like to make my own mix. Does anyone have any ideas on good formulations?

Thanks.

Each cup of your high fiber flour mix will be a blend comprised of  86.8 grams (about 3.1 oz) of bread flour and 33.2 grams ( about 1.2 oz) of their KA Pure Corn Fiber product(hi maize corn starch).

That "barley flour" component is just the "malted barley flour" that is already a typical addition to most US bread flours(pretty sure, read the KA Hi Maize flour mix and bread flour ingredient labels).

Hello  and thank you for the percentages.

Adding seeds and ground flax, nuts and flours with more than 5% fiber may get you there.

Gram for gram, hi-maize corn starch has far more fiber(60%) than anything mentioned here.

However, Sindlero probably already knows that.

Where can you get the stuff in Portland, OR?  Anyone know?  Sometimes, I can get Food Front to order specialty items from King Arthur (they carry their bread flour), so that is one possibility.  But, it would be nice if a local store carried it.
