Bread Flour for sourdough

These are products I genuinely use. Most of them have been a regular part of my kitchen for more than a decade. None of these recommendations are sponsored. I would love to sell these items to you direct, in the meantime, while I work full-time, I have sourced them from Amazon AU because they home deliver for free with Prime, or for orders over $39. Their prices are the same as other suppliers without the delivery fees. At no cost to you, I will also receive a small commission from Amazon if you purchase.

RYE ~ Wholemeal

Organic Rye Flour (5kg)
Approx Price: $23.95
Makes 10 loaves
Protein: 12.4%

Rye loaves are naturally smaller, flatter and denser due to less gluten. The dough tends to be wetter and slower to rise. Sharp, earthy flavour. I recommend mixing with white bread flour for more rise and lighter flavour. To start, try 80% white & 20% rye. Great nutrient boost for starter!

Great with cream cheese and salmon.

SPELT ~ White

Organic White Spelt Flour (5kg)
Approx Price: $44.50
Makes 10 loaves
Protein: 14%

Amazon listing shows wholemeal image. Naturally high in protein but doesn't rise as much as wheat and needs less water. Soft interior, gentle nutty flavour. See my 100% spelt recipe here. Spelt can be mixed with white bread flour for more rise. Can be used for other baking..

Makes great toast. Good with cheese.

SPELT ~ Wholemeal

Organic Wholemeal Spelt (5kg)
Approx Price: $43.50
Makes 10 loaves
Protein: 14.2%

Amazon listing shows white flour image. High in protein but doesn't rise as much as wheat. Semi-dense interior and deep nutty flavour. See my 100% spelt leaves here. Spelt can be mixed with white bread flour for more rise and lighter flavour. To start, try 80% white and 20% wholemeal spelt.

Like regular wholemeal but without the bitterness.

SPELT ~ White (1kg)

Vital Wheat Gluten (0.5kg)
Approx Price: $12.09
Makes 2 loaves
Protein: 13.3%

High in protein but doesn't rise as much as wheat since it has less gluten. It will give you a soft interior, gentle nutty flavour and can be mixed with wheat bread flours for more rise. This is a much smaller quantity if want to try spelt before committing to 5kg. See my 100% spelt leaves here.

SPELT ~ Wholemeal (1kg)

Vital Wheat Gluten (0.5kg)
Approx Price: $12.49
Makes 2 loaves
Protein: 12%

This brand is lower in protein than some others and being wholemeal, it would benefit from some Vital Wheat Gluten. You can also mix with white spelt or wheat bread flour. This is a much smaller quantity if want to try spelt before committing to 5kg. See my 100% spelt leaves here.

VITAL WHEAT GLUTEN

Vital Wheat Gluten (0.5kg)
Approx Price: $8.99
Protein: 75%

This little gem strengthens the gluten bonds in your sourdough improving structure and rise. Add to flours that are low in protein or sourdough breads that have a lot of add-ins like fruit, nuts, seeds, fats or teas. A little goes a long way. How to use Vital Wheat Gluten?
