This refers to the biological farming method used to cultivate our wheat. After harvesting we leave the plant rests on the field to form natural humus. This reduces the need for chemical fertilizer. We aim to take better care of the soil in order to produce a healthier plant, which needs less pesticides.
Is Bio-Wheat™ organic?
No, our product is not organic and we have never claimed to be. It is not sustainable to cultivate wheat organically in our region. We however, aim to cultivate a healthier wheat plant by taking better care of our soil. The appearance of earthworms in our soil have visibly increased over the past few years and this is a good indication of soil conditions suitable for healthy plant growth. Our product is natural in the sense that it contains no additives, preservatives or improvers.
Can people who are gluten intolerant use Bio-Wheat™ Stone Ground Flour?
We have had feedback from several gluten intolerant users who report that they do not have the same symptoms of stomach cramps or feeling bloated as experienced with commercially milled flour, when eating Bio-Wheat™ bread. The reason for this being, that we retain most of the wheat germ in our flour during the milling process. The wheat germ contains all the essential vitamins and minerals, but also the enzymes required to digest the protein in gluten. We mill our flour coarser and at a lower temperature and speed than commercially milled flour in order to retain most of the valuable wheat germ in our product.
Is Bio-Wheat™ Stone Ground Flour a non-GMO product?
Yes! Most of our wheat is sourced from our own farm and from trusted suppliers in our area, so we can guarantee the traceability of our product.
We have consulted with our suppliers, SENSAKO, and according to them there are currently no GMO wheat seed available in South-Africa.

Are those really the Fourie children on the packaging?
Yes! Our son & daughter (and their cousins) are all visible on the packaging. The children on the flour packets all grow up on Bio-Wheat™ bread! We decided to feature our children on the labels of our packaging, because we believe so strongly in the integrity of our product. If this product is good enough for the 5th generation Fouries, then it should be good enough for your children too!
