Hemp seeds alone do not mill into flour, they become butter because of the high oil content. In order to get flour, you need to remove the oil content. We mill the by-product of pressing hemp seed for oil, which we call hemp cake, into flour for just such a use. Our certified organic hemp flour is quite nice and is very fine. It is perfect for adding to baking and for bread.
Hemp flour doesn’t rise, has no gluten and is very hearty and therefore is not a flour that can be used in bread on it’s own, you would need to mix it with other flours, unless you are making a flat bread or a cracker. A 3:1 ratio produces a hearty heavy loaf all the way to a 7:1 ratio which produces basically a loaf of bread with hemp flecks in it.
Hemp flour is an excellent addition to your baking, adding the benefit of hemp proteins and the excellent fibre content of the hemp seed. If you are a commercial bakery or would like to purchase large amounts of the flour, but would like to mill it yourself, we offer the hemp seed cake in large quantities for just such a purpose.
Hemp flour is also excellent for brewers who would like to create a hemp beer that retains an excellent head. With the oils in hemp seed, this often causes poor hemp retention. This can be easily solved by adding hemp flour instead. With the significantly lowered levels of oils in the flour, the resulting beer will have much better head retention.
