Great Taste, the world’s most coveted food awards, which celebrates the very best in food and drink, announced the Great Taste stars of 2018. Out of over 12,600 products to be judged, we are delighted to be awarded a 3-stars for our wholegrain spelt flour and 2-stars for our white spelt flour. We are thrilled to have made the top 2% of the products that were awarded 3 stars and another great achievement is that we are the only spelt flour to ever receive the accolade of 3 stars since the awards began.
This year the awards were judged by over 500 of the most demanding palates including;
MasterChef 2018 champion, Kenny Tutt,
Chef and food writer, Elly Curshen,
Eco chef and food writer, Tom Hunt,
Author and chef, Zoe Adjonyoh,
Baker Tom Herbert,
Author and blogger, Izy Hossack,
Baker and recipe writer, Martha Collison,
As well as food buyers from Harrods, Selfridges and Sourced Market. To have such highly skilled and knowledgeable experts choose our spelt flour to receive 3 stars is utterly fantastic!
Although our spelt flour is extremely versatile and can be used for both sweet and savoury bakes the judges all made a standard loaf of bread to ensure judging was fair for all flour entered into the competition. Feedback from the judges on both our white and wholegrain flour included:
‘A fine grained fresh-smelling flour with harvest-time aroma. The flour easily made a soft and pliable dough which rose well’
‘This creamy coloured flour made a very soft and elastic dough which produced a perfect creamy coloured loaf of bread with a gentle but pleasing aroma.’
‘The resulting loaf was perfect – well-risen, well-shaped, with a pleasing aroma and good crumb and crust’
‘A superb flour.’
‘The crust and crumb were both good, it had an enjoyable flavour, good mouth feel and a good finish.’
We are over the moon with our 3 star and 2 star awards and can’t wait to proudly display the Great Taste Award logos on our retail products.
