Description

A strong grain for bread baking yeilding a moist crumb and a good texture. Red fife is good strength builder to combine with other more delicate grains for great baking performance.

Description

Heritage and heirloom grains are grain varieties that have been preserved for many years, each with its unique flavor and purposes in baking, as well as its non-modernized profile that seems to make it more digestible. They offer great flavor because they haven’t had the taste bred out of them in favor of high performance and yield.

Canadian Farmer Dave Fife commercialized this hard red winter wheat that was introduced to Canada via the Fife farm in the 1840’s. It is now preserved and protected as an heirloom grain. Because it is unaltered by modern genetic modification it is known for its tolerance by those who are gluten sensetive and its easier digestability. It has a nutty and sweet flavor with higher protein which provides moistness and strength to the crumb in bread. It is a good grain to combine with lower gluten grains like spelt or rye because of the strength it brings. It is also a good all around performer for any type of baking.
