Looking for a display that shows the difference in fresh ground vs store bought flour

Greetings all, I hope to be on this site for a long time to come!
I KNOW that I have seen before, and now cannot find, an educational display (it looks like test tubes in a holder sort of thing) that outlines and explains the difference in fresh ground and store bought flours and all the things that are taken OUT of store bought flour to make them shelf stable.

I saw it when poking around a while back, and meant to bookmark the page, of course never did, and now cannot google find it to save my life!

anyone out there know what I mean or how to find one?

TIA!

If you can find or borrow a copy, take a look at "Bread Matters" by A Whitley. The beginning of the book gives his explanation as to the declining values in modern processed wheat for flour. It is an opinionated view so don't take it for gospel without further reading.

Check out this link (to their grain mills page). It's part way down the page. :)
