Shop review #10 – In our search for vital wheat gluten (or gluten powder, to make our own seitan, more about that in another blogpost), we found Flourpower, a small shop inside the Artemeersmill at Poeke. Poeke is a rural village between Tielt and Aalter, 39 km from Bruges.
The shop has a great selection of flour mixtures, and some other bakery stuff.
This is what we bought:
- groats of soy, 1kg, 2,35€
- chocolate chips, 1kg, 7,30€
- vital wheat gluten, 5kg, 13,70€
- 10 grain meal, 1kg, 2,10€
Very happy to have found the gluten powder. I bought a 5kg bag, but they also have smaller amounts available.
I have no idea yet what I’m going to do with the soy groats, but I was so intrigued by this (and hadn’t seen it before in any shops), I just bought it. I’m sure I will found some good use for it. If you have any suggestions, let me know!
The 10 grain meal also mentions vitamine C and enzymes among the ingredients, and the shop owner confirmed they were resp. from citrus and wheat origin.
We took a look upstairs to see the inside of the mill. The mill wasn’t operational that day, because there was a very strong wind. You can see some photos from the inside below.
Very glad to have found this shop, as it is not so easy to find gluten powder around here. I had previously bought organic vital wheat gluten in organic shop Biovita in Bruges (only available on special demand), but that was about 4times this price (+/- 50€ for 5kg, being organic).
here’s are some more photos from Flourpower and the Artmeersmolen:
