❁ Buying from bulk bins might cost less and allows you to purchase just what you need.
❁ Buy an amount you can use within a month or two to be sure of freshness.
❁ Look for tightly sealed bags or boxes.
❁ Check the “best used by” date on packages and choose the most time.
❁ Flour should smell faintly sweet or have no aroma at all.
❁ Rancid flour smells and tastes sour or slightly bitter. It won’t make you ill but the taste is not pleasant even after baking.
