    Default Whole Grain Wheat Flour

    Most of the commercial whole wheat flour you buy has already gone rancid by the time you use it. After wheat has been ground, natural wheat-germ oil becomes rancid at about the same rate that milk becomes sour. So if the flour hasn't been refrigerated after being milled, the real shelf life is only a few days after it has been ground. But, as few people have access to freshly milled wheat anymore, most people don't know what it can taste like. Some of the artisinal bakers get regular shipments of whole wheat flour right after it has been milled and they use it right away. A few bakers have their own mills.

    It could probably be more natural. But as long as it doesn't stink and is not full of weevils enjoy.

    No, he's saying that it isn't as good as fresh ground flour. I don't even freeze mine...just store it is my cool cellar for up to 2 months (King Arthur) and make bread...it hasn't killed me yet.
