interesting info on food storage including grains, flours etc
In my search for spelt flour, my brother directed me to a company that sells all types of grains, beans, flours, etc for long term storage.
the name of the place is Walton Feeds. They are based in Idaho. You can download their catalog to see what they offer and how much the stuff is. Eveything from dried beans, to 50lb bags of flour to grain mills (no photos of the grain mills that I could find) , but what I found very interesting was the information on this particular area of their site that talks about long term storage and expected results.
Since so many folks on THIS site are probably "from scratch" bakers etc, I thought you might be interested in the information provided.
One thing I didn't know, that I discovered reading thru this site, is that those little packets you find in so many things (the little 1-1/2" square packets in clear wrap?) are used to remove oxygen from the items which they're packed in. I knew they said something about a freshness packet, but I didn't know they were designed to suck out oxygen................
anyway - if you get a chance - check out the link. you may find it as intersting as I did.
