Wheat Cleaning is a helpful training resource for flour millers. It consists of nine modules covering wheat cleaning machinery, contaminants, milling separators, aspirators, machines that exploit density, indent cylinders and separators, scourers, magnets and colour sorters.
Whole grain wheat: resources
Milling whole grain wheat flour – Information for flour mills: this technical information pack demonstrates how to maximise value when milling whole grain flour. Our aim is to help flour millers understand why and how to produce whole grain flour according to the global definition.
Whole grain products using Australian wheat: This information pack aims to support food manufacturers across South East Asia (SEA), by providing guidelines on how to produce whole grain foods using Australian wheat.
Whole grain for better health: this information pack highlights the health benefits of whole grains, outlines global strategic initiatives for defining and promoting whole grains, and provides recommendations for increasing whole grain consumption.
Quantifying the true cost of wheat lots to optimise value for flour mills
This information pack explains how choosing high quality wheat, such as Australian wheat, though sometimes more expensive per tonne of raw wheat purchased, can actually result in significant savings when compared to milling cheaper low-quality wheats. The information presented here has the potential for significant savings every year.
Australian wheat for healthy whole grain products
Food lovers are becoming more and more interested in whole grain foods and their many health benefits, and flour millers are starting to look at which types of wheat might be best for whole grain products. Bright Australian white wheat has clear advantages for whole grain products in colour and flavour.
In this presentation from the 2021 Australian Grains Industry Conference, Dr Sara Grafenauer explains the benefits of whole grain foods.
