My current supplier has informed me he's longer able to get my preferred brand of pastry and whole multi-grain flours. They were produced in a very small mill which has gone out of business.
Can anyone recommend good quality pastry and multi-grain flours (prefer whole-grains) made without additives or bleaching? I use King Arthur AP and Bread flours and love them. Does anyone have a supplier who knows if King Arthur distributes any other flours wholesale for commercial use? When I called KA they said the only flours they wholesell are AP and Bread. Is that right? Right now I'm buying retail for pastry and whole-grain flours at the local Whole Foods and the prices are killing my margins. I'm getting desperate.
I've tried Arrowhead Mills pastry flour, and it's pretty good. Has anyone ever used any other of their flours? Good, bad, indifferent?
OR, does anyone have experience grinding their own flours in-shop? I've considered this, but it's very time-consuming and I'm concerned about consistency and quality since I'm no expert in milling.
