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!

By Matthew K. in MI on 10/24/2018 - Verified BuyerThe instructions are sparse, so it took just a bit of finniggeling to understand how the product works and get it adjusted properly.
I grind rye and einkorn. Einkorn does not grind as cleanly as wheat or rye when using a stone; the resulting cleanup is much more difficult than for either of those grains.
Once I had this product running, I ground 850g Einkorn to fine flour in ~10 min (coarser grinds would go more quickly).
I find this product superior to a highly rated competitor product, as follows: lighter and more compact; easier to assemble and get running; grinding mechanism far easier to clean than either the stainless plates or carborundum stones. Quality of grind is equivalent; quickness of grind superior (half the time); grain is heated considerably less during grinding; processes difficult-to-grind grains more easily and cleanly; scatters less dust nearby. The auger mechanism moving grain from the hopper to grinder is more efficient, markedly shortening the time required, and actually clearing the system at the end of the grind.
I have not attempted to compare grinding of peanuts etc. , which the competitor claims it can do and this one does not claim it can do without prior processing.7 out of 7 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Brad H. in WA on 12/5/2018 - Verified BuyerHaving never ordered from PHG before my first order was over the phone, the person who helped me was very friendly and helped me to make a decision on which mill head to buy based on her experience and she was 100% correct I love this mill head.
