Flakes, Grains & Flours


There is such a wide range of nutritional value in grains, from fulfilling your basic carbohydrate needs, to being a good source of calcium and iron (Quinoa), and magnesium and B vitamins (Oats). Wheat, Barley and Oats have tended to be the staples in this country, getting whittled down to mainly wheat recently. This is changing as people become more familiar with the range of grains. It is important to vary the grains you eat for maximum nutritional value.

Flaked grains make for an easy and quicker way of cooking as the grain has been broken up and rolled and slightly cooked. You can then use them for porridge or flapjacks. Of course grains can also be sprouted, see our easy sprouting guide.
