SRHCB,

I recently returned from vacation with my brother who grinds his own flour (he didn't do this on the vacation, it just came up in conversation).

He claims that flour loses most of its nutritional value (and possibly its flavor) within 72 hours of being grinded (milled?). He says he can definitely taste the difference.

After a Google search I found there are many countertop machines out there. And Whole Foods apparently sells whole wheat for grinding at home.

I'm just trying to research whether this would be a good fit for my family.

Thanks,
