As any professional will tell you, the first step in making great food is using the very best ingredients. Eureka Mills are South Africa’s pioneer in stoneground flour and they have been honing their skills in the craft of milling for 23 years.
It all began in 1998 when two local farmers sought to add value to the wheat they produced. They set up a rudimentary flour mill in their shed and soon realised the demand for stoneground flour was huge. The mill slowly expanded, and the team decided to take in wheat from other farmers in the district, via the local co-operative (Sentraal-Suid Kooperasie), to ensure consistent production capacity. Thus, Eureka Mills was born.
Staying true to its roots, Eureka Mills use only locally cultivated, Southern Cape wheat of the highest quality. This is because they believe in the importance of supporting local agriculture and commerce. Their mill and production facility is based in the Southern Cape, so they source their wheat locally, literally from the silos which are 1.2 kilometres from their location. Eureka Mills proudly aligns itself with the local co-operative and in doing so, they support local farmers. In addition to this, all wheat cultivated in South Africa is GMO-free
Why choose stoneground flour?
Stoneground flour ensures that no components are extracted from or added to the flour. Therefore, the flour retains all the wheat germ, natural oils, vitamins and enzymes. Eureka Mills don’t extract the very fine flours during the milling process, as some other mills do to make self-raising flour or baking powder. The fine flours which are retained give their flour products a baking quality that’s popular with artisan bakers and home-bakers alike.
