We now have a limited range of our non-wheat, gluten free flours available to order here.
PLEASE BE AWARE that if you order Gluten Free flour at the same time as other flours, they may be packed together in the same box.
Yes these are GLUTEN FREE but there is a far wider application of these than for use in such a specific niche.
Outside the Western world, approximately 2/3rd of the world do not regularly eat wheat or wheat flour based products, relying on the benefits of maize or rice. To these nations, gluten free is the norm rather than the exception forced upon them by medical necessity.
In the West, so many more people are now finding themselves unable or unwilling to eat the so called “normal” flours containing gluten. This has given rise or at least made a huge contribution to a whole new food sector that is essentially labelled FREE FROM.
To many this means that the products are not for them – they are for dietary challenged individuals and could not possibly feature in a traditional diet or everyday food cupboard that most of us enjoy the full run of.
Shipton Mill’s NEW range of non-wheat flours are a really special range of unique and very interesting flours made from a variety of interesting grains and seeds. They are all milled in our new purpose built mill on brand new equipment.
They are all, as it happens, Gluten Free, but they can be used by anyone to make tasty variations and additions to normal cooking as well as by those needing a gluten free range of flours to thicken sauces, make biscuits or gluten free bread and cake alternatives.
Many of the flours in this section are used in combination with other similar or gluten free flours rather than individually. Naturally this depends on the recipe, but typically combinations of different flours combine to give different effects and are rarely used on their own.
We are beyond excited to announce the launch our first cookbook with Headline Publishing.
