If you like to bake and are interested in experimenting with some unique, higher fiber flours – check out King Arthur Flours. King Arthur is one of the most well-loved lines of whole wheat flour products. The basics you can get in any grocery store – but for some of the more uncommon varieties, you’ll have to shop online.
King Arthur’s white whole wheat flour (made from hard white spring wheat) is one of the few whole wheat flours that can be substituted 1-for-1 for all-purpose white flour in most baked goods recipes, without compromising taste.
K.A. also has a traditional 100% organic whole wheat flour, one that most bakers will agree should only be substituted for up to one-half the amount of all-purpose flour used in baked goods recipes.
