Premium Unbleached Baking Flour for over 150 years.

Heckers & Ceresota Flour have been amongst the highest quality unbleached flours for over 150 years. We are a third generation family business that takes great pride in the quality and honesty of our flours.

 

Why is Unbleached so important?

Most flour mills bleach their flour by artificially whitening it through the use of chemicals or other additives such as chlorine or peroxide.  Chemically bleaching flour speeds up the whitening process and is believed to leave behind unintentional byproducts and also damage the nutritional content of the wheat flour. On the other hand, unbleached flour does not contain any additives and will naturally whiten over time while preserving all of its nutrients.  Freshly milled unbleached flour, like Heckers or Ceresota flour, has a rich and creamy color.   

 

 

Why we have always produced Unbleached Flour:

We believe a high quality flour should not contain any artificial additives to alter its natural state.  Bleaching flour can damage the natural components in the flour which can harm its baking qualities.  Heckers and Ceresota Unbleached All Purpose flour is a great product for yeast baking, and bleaching flour can be especially harmful to the performance of a flour in yeast baking.
