White whole wheat flour in Canada?

Debby's picture

Does anyone know if there is a source for white whole wheat flour in Canada?  Would love to try some.  Perhaps Bellingham might have a store that carries it?

According to this link on Chowhound, it's available at Whole Foods in Toronto.  I believe there's a Whole Foods in Vancouver, so it might be worth checking there.

I'm interested in getting my hands on some of this flour too. If anyone else knows of a source, I'd love it if you would pass it on. Otherwise, I'll pick some up on my next voyage to Toronto.

Not yet - I didn't even know it was available in Canada until I googled it this morning.  There's a trip to Whole Foods in my immediate future!

I dragged my husband out to Chilliwack this morning to check out an organic flour mill that perhaps 'tuck' had mentioned some time ago.   www.anitasorganicmill.com  Well, it seems that they're carrying the white whole wheat now!  You can get it milled or just buy the grain.  I decided on 10 kg of the milled; 5 kg of the grain itself.  I felt like a kid in a candy shop!  They had all sorts of grains, flours and flakes.  Naturally I came away with all sorts of goodies to try!  Tried some kamut flakes--crisp and nutty flavored; think they'd be great in granola.  Spelt  was highly recommended too, so got some flour and flakes to try.  I'm having fun just trying to figure out what to try first.  I know what I'll be doing tonight when the hockey game gets too stressful to watch! :)


Do keep in touch when you start playing with this 'new' flour!

Before the dark presence of the Art Institute took over Dubrulle, we ran great artisanal bread courses and that's where the flour came from.

The girl at Anita's Flour Mill was most helpful; had lots of info to share.  She was saying that they're getting more and more artisanal bakeries in the lower mainland that are using their products.


A website that she recommended was http://fooddownunder.com  for info on baking with grains.

Lucky you!  Do you have any experience baking with spelt and kamut?


I will certainly report back on the white whole wheat - I may hit Whole Paycheck tomorrow and stock up for  some breadmaking this weekend.

Very little experience with the spelt; none with the kamut.  But I intend to remedy this soon! :)
