Friday Food Find: Flour With Power

This Friday I’m introducing you to an awesome new whole grain flour that I recently came across at the grocery store. I’m constantly looking for substitutions to make baked goods a little healthier & this is THE PERFECT way to do so.

Ultragrain Flour

Meet Ultragrain. Here’s why it’s got the power:

  • it’s a blend of white & ultragrain flours, meaning it has the taste of a white flour with the health benefits of a whole wheat blend
  • 9 g of whole grain per serving
  • 2x the fiber of other all-purpose flour
  • lower starch content
  • increased essential minerals + vitamins
  • increased antioxidants
  • it’s NOT expensive!!

I was amazed by the taste of this stuff. You really cannot tell a difference between this & white flour in baking – I will never go back! Also, unlike other health-friendly flours, Ultragrain isn’t ridiculously expensive. When I tried some brown rice whole wheat flour for a recipe it was about $8 for a little tiny bag! I’m pretty sure that I only paid around $2.50 for this one.

In my opinion, this is the kind of health-conscience change that EVERYONE can & should make. There’s no difference in taste & a very minimal difference in price. Now you can feel a little less guilty about baking those cupcakes you’ve been craving 😉

As always, the nutrition facts – if interested you can also take a peek at the nutrition facts for another all-purpose flour to compare. Put Ultragrain to the test in your own kitchen & let me know what you think in the comments below! If you have another go-to flour I’d love to hear about it!
