From the cover: Qucik, Easy, and Inexpensive
The only complete guide available on the subject of home milling. If you are looking for a whole-grain health bonanza with just a few minutes of kitchen time, you've picked the right book! Modern flour mills and bread machines turn breadmaking into a task no more complicated, nor expensive, than grinding beans and brewing breakfast coffee. Flour Power tells you how to compare, locate and buy one of the dozens of different mills on the market, how to buy the "right" wheat and how to make delicious, light whole meal loaves - every time.
Guaranteed Whole-Grain Health
Why bother grinding flour at home? Flour Power explains why virtually all commercial flours (even "whole wheat") have lost fiber, vitamins, mineral, enzymes and phytochemicals during processing and storage. A diet rich in whole grains has been linked to vastly improved health, but in many cases researchers aren't absolutely certain which components in the whole grain are actually doing the good work. The only safe way to get all the health benefits is to eat all the grain.
Flour Power also tells you how to:
-make a gourmet cook euphoric
-replace "bad" carbs with "good" carbs
-add whole-grain health to low-carb diets
-roll oats at home
-ensure food self-sufficiency in case of natural disasters
-get whole grains in the diets of gluten sufferers
-grind flour manually, if you prefer
-grind wheat, corn, rye, beans, spelt, quinoa, even peanut butter
-prepare healthful (and delicious) quick breads, cakes, cookies, muffins, cornbread and
-much more from home-milled flours
