Fresh ground flour is better. Way better. Fresh milled flour has better texture and a more complex depth of flavor. Even the highest quality commercial flours are unable to duplicate it. The difference is obvious as soon as you taste our bread. Great Harvest’s legendary, whole wheat bread is made-from-scratch from just five simple ingredients: water, salt, fresh yeast, fresh ground wheat, and honey.
Baking from scratch was the norm for our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. They were concerned about making great-tasting food to nourish their family’s bodies. So is Great Harvest. Through the generations, our world has turned to cheaper, easier, less time-consuming methods of food preparation, losing the benefits of handmade, healthy baking and cooking. In fact, so-called “fresh” baked bread is often made from frozen dough. It may have been processed in bulk at a central distribution center and then sent to various store locations months ago. Even if the dough was recently made, it was most likely made from commercial flour with additives, conditioners, and other manipulation of the wheat’s original form. In other words, what you may think of as “fresh baked bread” is probably not very fresh at all — only recently baked.
As with any plant-based whole food, the less processing wheat is subjected to, the more nutrition and flavor it retains. At Great Harvest, when we talk about fresh bread, we mean that our wheat kernels were ground into fresh whole grain flour this morning and we added only simple, recognizable ingredients to compliment the sweet, nutty flavor of the wheat. We make fresh dough from scratch, by hand, and bake it for you. We still believe in our elaborately long, traditional methods of bread making. We don’t rush it. Time allows our bread to develop its exquisite flavor and texture naturally, without the use of additives.
