Are your Flours fortified with Folic acid or Thiamine?

Folic Acid is also known as vitamin B9, Thiamine is also known as vitamin B1. They are both water-soluble B vitamins. 

Australian and New Zealand flour millers are required to add thiamine and folic acid (a form of the B vitamin folate) to wheat flour for bread-making purposes. You will find folic acid and thiamine listed in the ingredients list of some of the wholegrain milling sustainable flour range.

Organic wheat flour for bread-making purposes does NOT need to be fortified with folic acid or thiamine. Our range of organic wheat flours are not fortified with folic acid or thiamine.

Our other non-wheat flour, such as cassava flour, quinoa flour etc are not required to be fortified.

If any flour is fortified with folic acid or thiamine it is listed on the ingredients list of the product which can be found on the label or on our website product page for the item.
