Emmer Wheat

Hi,

Where am I able to find Emmer Flour in London, UK? Have no trouble in finding Spelt, Einkorn and Khorasan however not having much luck with Emmer. Would love to try it. Oh, and any tips of what I should expect from this grain would be great.

 

Thank you.

If you can't find a local stockist you can buy it direct from Shipton Mill

Thank you so much. Going to order from this website. I've tried so many shops around London but cannot find Emmer flour. Which is funny because Einkorn and Khorasan should be more rare, as Emmer is still widely used in many countries, yet shops stock these flours.

I have not used Emmer flour but I use quite a lot of their White #4, wholemeal and white spelt, Type 55 and a few more of their flours.  I have found them all to be good and so I now buy the vast majority of my flours from them.  Whilst there are other great millers around the UK such as Gilchesters and Bacheldre the Shipton Mill offer of free shipping on a reasonably small purchase is a great draw for an accountant like myself :) .  However, it wouldn't be a draw if their products weren't good!

Happy Baking (let us know how you get on with Emmer) ;)

Great products from them and great service.  Perfect if you live in the UK, unfortunately it becomes very expensive very fast if you have to ship overseas.

I just want to sing their praises too. I buy most of my flour from them, it has all been lovely.
