Fresh-rolled oats, or stale processed flakes: Which sounds better for breakfast?
If you like the fresh idea, KoMo's FlicFloc is right up your alley. Its hand operated design brings an entirely different engineering approach to grain flaking. Rather than using traditional cylindrical rollers, the FlicFloc's tapered rollers rotate on ball bearings in a case of laminated beechwood. Turning the crank is literally child’s play with the FlicFloc. Simply secure to the table with the supplied clamp (up to 78 mm), fill the hopper, and start turning for fast-action flaking. Standing just 184 mm tall, the FlicFloc won't take up much space in your cupboard. Glass receptacle is included
The flaker is perfect for rolling all softer grains like oat groats, except corn. The KoMoFlocino is your complete, all-in-one manual flaking center!
The Benefits of having a Flaker or Stone MIll!
Grain seeds can be seen as a condensed and sleeping plant. It contains all the genes, nutrients/building blocks necessary to reproduce. Grains are an extremely nutrient dense food for its size. Whole grain is rich in vitamins, bio-available minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, enzymes, phytochemicals, antioxidants, carbohydrates and aromatic elements. It is preferable to store your whole grain, which stores well, and to mill or roll only your daily flour/grain requirements. This will ensure that the flour or rolled grain is completely fresh, optimally nutritious and deliciously palatable. As you can see nutrition lies in nothing but the whole grain!
Any milling or rolling process kills the grain, and oxygen is introduced into the equation. After the processing of grains, spoiling, oxidation and decomposition is a natural and inevitable process, similar to that of a grated apple which oxidizes and turns brown. Freshly stone-milled flour is packed with nutrients, but has a limited shelf life of only a couple of days, as the essential fatty acids, amino acids and antioxidants in the germ start to oxidize and turn rancid once milled/rolled. In fact, the essential fatty acids turn into a toxic trans-fatty acid. You can store conventional white and brown flour for much longer, since the germ with its spoiling qualities are removed, but these flours are almost totally devoid of nutrition. In most conventionally milled flours, the germ which contains almost all of the essential nutrients, is discarded due to its spoiling qualities. Sadly even some commercial stone millers use the process of de-germing to separate and remove the germ from the flour in order to enhance shelf life. However, with a stone mill in your house, you can take full control by milling grain only on demand. Home stone milling ensure no oxidization or nutrient loss which in turn offers numerous health benefits. When previously wheat- or gluten-intolerant individuals start to enjoy freshly milled organic whole grain, it has been found that the intolerance disappears almost immediately and consumers gain the added benefits of losing weight while gaining vitality.
