Further information worth knowing for the use of a flour mill, the equipment and the benefits of using a flour mill.


White flour is produced when grains are finely ground in an industrial flour mill and the husks of the grain are filtered out. This leaves only pure starch (carbohydrates), meaning the minerals and fibres essential for digestion are largely lost; so much about the nutritional value of white flour.

If you want to avoid this by buying wholemeal flour that is somewhat better, however if the flour is not processed within 24 hours after milling, many nutrients are already lost through contact with oxygen.

Considering the necessary transport of the flour from the grain mill to the wholesaler and finally to the supermarket, which wholemeal flour can do it, within a few hours, or even within a day into the home kitchen?

The time between milling and processing at home can take several weeks.

This is one of the reasons why it is advisable to buy your own grain mill if you want to have a healthier lifestyle.

The question of which flour mill is best for you – only you know the answer.

Are you a single person or a two-person household and should your new grain mill be compact and efficient, which can be stored away quickly?

Or would you prefer to bake bread for several people more often? Then you need a powerful flour mill with more power in a shorter time. On the other hand, you want a nice looking mill, as it will be a permanent fixture in your kitchen.

If that’s the case for you, then you should not compromise when choosing the components of a flour mill. Our homepage menu details all the important facts under “Our construction of grain mills”

If you want to be sure when buying your grain mill, you should also ask the question: “Should I buy it from a dealer or from a manufacturer?”

More than 90% of all flour mills sold online are offered by retailers or mail order companies. It is in the nature of things that they all try to buy flour mills as cheaply as possible in order to resell them with the highest possible profit.

As a final consumer, how can you control which motor operates in your grain mill?  Can various plastic parts for grain mills have been produced in low-wage countries?

There is nothing wrong with that, if the product delivered is of guaranteed high quality!

If, on the other hand, you buy a grain mill from a manufacturer who uses high-quality EU materials and pays its employees according to European wage standards, your initial investment may be higher, but you will be guaranteed to have no problems with your flour mill for the next 12 years. Salzburg Grain Mills will carry on milling for decades beyond their warranty period.

If, despite of all due care, a fault occurs in the manufacture of the flour mill, it is essential for you to know whom to contact. Often it only requires competent advice by a specialist and the fault on the flour mill can be lifted without the mill having to be shipped back to the manufacturer. And who knows if the dealer (who mostly has little idea about grain mills) from whom you purchased your flour mill a few years ago is still in business? We are known for our super service; always repairing has been our philosophy and our aim for more than 40 years.
