Whole Grain Nutrition: Harvest the Benefits!
Imagine that for years, your children ate mainly candy. Imagine that you did, too. Imagine an entire nation on a candy diet. Imagine the health consequences.
Natural whole grains contain a myriad of health-essential nutrients, from proteins to vitamins and amino acids. But "white flour" consists only of the starchy endosperm of the wheat kernel. In its natural form the endosperm provides wholesome energy, but it's the least nutrient-rich part of the grain. Removed are the nutrient-packed bran, wheat germ, and wheat germ oil. Then to make it extra white, industrial processors go further, chemically bleaching it, and returning just enough of a few vitamins to stave off beriberi and rickets. They're allowed to call the end product "Enriched Flour" but a truthful label would read "Impoverished Flour." This snow white, denutritionalized substance is a commodity worth billions of dollars annually to its merchandisers because of a commercially useful characteristic: Unlimited shelf life. No matter how long it sits in the mass distribution channel, it can't go bad precisely because there's actually nothing left in it that can go bad. Nutritionally, it's bad when bagged. A few companies have grown enormously rich marketing this pseudo-food on the basis of convenience, ease, and its dazzling white appearance. But a blind eye was turned to the consequences of replacing real whole grain flour with something that looks special, yet is virtually devoid of nutrition. In essence, candy. So widely has this nutritional travesty become accepted that we call it—and think of it as—wheat flour. But to depart further from natural grain flour would scarcely be possible. Then to make matters worse, artificial sweeteners, flavors and colors, appetite stimulants and preservatives are added to many of our foods. "Artificial" tells you those things aren't naturally food. But have you ever wondered what they actually are, then? Did you know some of them are actually petroleum derivatives? What unintended side effects might those complex counterfeit compounds have on us?
The human body is an absolute marvel; scientists have a long way to go to understand a tenth of how we work. But as capable and as resilient as our bodies are, common sense and history teach that we need wholesome, nutritious food to remain healthy and strong. The denatured byproducts being mass marketed today don't provide what we need, because they've been profoundly altered by processes in which real nutrition is considered last, or not at all.
There's a great solution to this problem. By grinding grains in your kitchen and using the whole grain flour while it's fresh, you get the nutrition needed for strength and health. You also get far tastier food, with genuine character—incomparably more satisfying than today's mass marketed pretenders. After transitioning to whole grains, putting out a plate of white styro-bread will elicit comments like "Why are you giving us this... and where's the good stuff?". Even flour labeled as "whole grain" in stores falls far short of what you can easily grind yourself, because unless it's ground while you wait, the essential Vitamin E in true whole grain flour would go rancid in days (meaning that it's probably been removed), and all nutrients begin steadily oxidizing-away from exposure to oxygen as soon as grain is millled. What's in those bags is not whole grain flour if it's been sitting on a shelf for even a few days; that's literally impossible.
Making real food is more than doable, it's downright fun with help from Pleasant Hill Grain! A high speed self cleaning grain mill like the Nutrimill is the place to start. And to make whole grain bread quickly, easily and with consistently wonderful results, nothing beats the Bosch Universal Kitchen Center... a full-function mixer capable of both mixing and kneading bread that's ready to pop in the oven — quickly and without hand kneading. These machines make it easy to turn the corner to a far better and more enjoyable way of eating!

“I’m pleased to be able to grind the small amounts of flour I need with a relatively low cost mill that doesn't take up a lot of my precious storage space. I love how soft and fine it grinds the flour, and the quick and easy cleanup afterward.”

By JR on 8/28/2018 - Verified BuyerAll the loafs I make w/ it have no oven spring (sourdough), and are very slow to rise. I'm kinda new to milling my own grain, but I think it's because it won't grind fine enough. When I grind hard red or white on the finest setting and run the flour though a #40 sieve, I get 135g of bran for 250g of flour... which seems to high an extraction rate to me. To get 250g of whole wheat I seive out the flour and re-grind the rest. After 3-4 times though the mill I still end up with 10gm that won't go thought a #40 sieve. So, am I doing something wrong, or the wrong tool? making cut oats works fine though.Moderator:
After visiting with JR, he's decided to keep his Ankarsrum mill and also purchase another mill to cover all the bases he's trying to achieve. Thanks, JR, for your review.5 out of 5 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Janet P., PA on 11/18/2018 - Verified BuyerJust used my new grain mill attachment for my Ankarsrum mixer. I am very pleased with how fine my flour is and how quietly the mill ground it. Last one was very noisy.4 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Mark D. in CO on 5/5/2020 - Verified BuyerI've just received this grain mill and used it to bake whole grain bread. I was a little nervous because this site indicated you could use it to grind fine flour and the manufacturer site said you could use it to grind course flour, but what I found it that I can use it to make flour just like I would have purchased. I'm very happy with it.2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Mrs K on 5/18/2020 - Verified BuyerI have used a Magic Mill "Assistent" (from Electrolux) for decades. Never purchased the grain mill attachment, but found a need for it when all the flour disappeared on store shelves. Since the Ankarsum mixer looked so similar to my machine, decided to give it a try. This works very well indeed and I am enjoying a breakfast of whole wheat toast made from hard red wheat because it it.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Eileen S. in GA on 1/27/2017 - Verified BuyerI'm returning this mill because I needed a mill that would have a fine grind for bread baking. However, it would do for cracked grains. I have other mills that would crack grains.Moderator:
Most bakers are tickled with the bread results they get with this mill's flour, but we understand that objectives vary. Please give us a call to discuss your needs, if you'd like--we do offer mills that grind finer, up to "incredibly fine, I-can't-believe-this-is-whole-grain-flour" fine! And thanks for your review!12 out of 13 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Kevin M. in WI on 4/11/2016 - Verified BuyerI already owned a Nutri Mill which I purchased from Pleasant Hill Grain but it would not give me a cracked rye as it ground too fine. A blogger from The Fresh Loaf told me she was using the Ankarsrum mill for cracked wheat and it worked well. It does the coarse end of the spectrum very well. It does not do fine flour so well but the Nutri Mill does so I now have all the bases covered. I also purchased my Anksarsrum mixer from you and it has been 6 years. Two years ago you helped me find someone to service it and it is still doing a great job with my artisan breads (8 lbs of dough at a clip). The products you sell are great and you are always helpful. Thanks a bunch.12 out of 14 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Tarajoy on 9/22/2016 - Verified BuyerHad the mixer and was so pleased I ordered every attachment for the mixer. All of the attachments work great and I now make bread that is far superior to store/bakery made breads and I have been making breads for 60+ years. So pleased with Ankarsrum brand items. I also called Pleasant Hill prior to my big order for all the parts and they were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The shipping was also speedy. Highly recommend Pleasant Hill Grain and is definitely where I will go for future purchases for my kitchen!8 out of 10 people found this review helpful. Did you?
