Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 17, 1971 THE LfTHftRIOGE HESAIO 3 Stone-ground flour milled in Alberta Stone- around flour is now be- ing mill at Bassano using own wheat, durum, rye and barley. Starlet! n vcar ago by a group of farm? s in the district who were oo-vciticd aliout the vol- ume of Ion quality grain enter- ing the livestock feeding busi- ness, Al1 via Grain Processing Co-op was formed. The company is already sell- Ing flour in tnnny of the stores, in co-op and Spfevay stores in southern Alberta and in Woodwards stores throughout the province. The company diirectors hone in the very near future to be selling bo' cereals made from cracked hard spring wheat, cracked durum and blended grains. The company's trade name is "Alberta King." to Ted Schaffcr, di- rector o( (he company, s lone- grinding grain yields a flavor, texture and nutritional quality that is unmatched by modem technology. All grain contains an embryo, or "germ" section. Wheat ferm, consisting of an- proximately two per cent of tlie West winds cause tree discoloration By W. A. nOBERTS Pb.nt Physiologist Lcthbridge Research Stulicm Visitors lo Waterton Lakes National Parks and the Crows- nest Forest Itcserve will have noticed the brown color of many of the e vergreens this summer. This discoloration was to be seen primarily in stands or individual trees exposed to the west winds. Climbers who readied the higher elevations may have noticed trees with brown upper brandies and green lower branches. Some of this damage was caused by windburn.

During the growing season the trees can replace P'N loss from the writer in the soil but in tlie winler- timc llv.' ground is frozen and the trees, Therefore, can no longer replace the lost mois- ture. When conditions have Iwen particularly severe the ever- green needles may lose so much ivaler that they die. Tlie dead needles turn brown, giving the trees Iheir brownish color. In sev.'ie cases tlic whole tree will d'e.

Ever- greens should not be planted where they will IK unduly ex- posed lo dry Chinook winds or subjected to severe drought conditions. wheat kernel, contains high quality protein and most of the kernel's vitamins and miner- als. All the oil, from which the flavor of the grain is de- rived, comes f'om the germ section. Wheat germ is consid- ered one of tlie highest natural sources of the B vitamins and vitamin E. These have to be added to wliite and whole wheat flour because the wheat germ has been removed to extend its shelf-life. Stone-ground grain retains all its natural nut -itional qualities and is not subjected to any bleaching process. Studies conducted by the U.S. department of agriculture have that when wheat is pro- cessed into v.hite flour much of the B v.'lamin and vitamin E content is lost. Three groups of scientists an- alyzed the composition of 11 wheats, 20 flours milled from these wheats and 25 wheat food products in five geniraphical regions. They found that vita- min E was particularly sensi- tive lo ttie bleaching profess used for conventional flour and that there were major losses during processing in the B vita- mins thiamin. riboflavin, niacin. and vitamin B-6. They found less than 15 per cent of the vitamin B-6 in whole wiieal was found in bread. Tlie U.S. studies also showed that treatments -such as bleaching caused greater nutrient losses than the milling process. Slim Blair, manager of the Alberta Grain Processing Co- op, reports that ttw shelf-life of the Alberta stone-ground flour is at least a year. A shelf-life of (his length has been achieved through the use of special clean- ing equipment and Hie stone- grinding process itself which blends the wheat germ evenly through the flour. Tlie cool, slow rubbing of the grain which means the-e is no concentration of oily flakes to oxidize and become rancid. High speed milling, on the other hand, isolates the germ. It remains a small oily mass which is very subject to rancid- ity, particularly under warm conditions. Hence, the necessity to either remove the or to add a preservative. No pre- servatives arc added to stone- ground flour. The average protein content of the wheat used in the Bassano mill is 15 per cent or better, and, at the present time, all the grain comes from fanners who do not use any agricultural chemicals like IcrtiUtors or herbicides. Mr. Schaffcr is confident Hiat I lie volume of stonc-g-ound flour used in Alberta will in- crease rapidly as people come aware of its high nutri- tional value and tlie excellent flavor imparted to the baked products by tlie wheat germ. The Hesearch Council of Al- berta helped the Grain Processing Co-op with their preliminary economic feasibil- ity studies and provided tech- nical information on wheat pro- cessing and flour milling. The department of household economics at the University of Alberta also conMbuted lo the project by testing many of the recipes that are enclosed in each hag of flour.
