Which types of grain can be processed with which type of grain mill?
As you may know, we – the Salzburg grain mills – build many different kinds of mill models. From the small but fine grain mill Carina, to our family and hand mills, to our very efficient commercial mills. Our grain mills stand for quality, longevity and good manufacture. Also we find it really important to use natural materials.
What distinguishes our mill models, on the one hand, is the field of application and, on the other hand, the use of different types of grain. The question is: Which types of grain can be processed with which type of grain mill? Or. What grain can you not grind with your mill?
“Commonly used” grain such as wheat, spelt, rye, buckwheat, etc. can be ground very well with all mill models. But then there are so many other cereal and pseudo-cereal varieties that should be used prudently. In order to know which types of grain you can grind with your Salzburg grain mill well and with which varieties you have to be a little more careful, we have provided for you a mill comparison in form of a table. In this detailed table, you can see exactly what grain is suitable for your mill. Here is the mill comparison >>
What you cannot grind with your mill are generally oily seeds. Flaxseeds, mustard seeds, sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, pumpkin seeds, nuts, almonds, etc., you should therefore refrain from grinding. Due to the consistency you cannot grind: salt, sugar, tea, flowers, leaves, grasses, sprouts, small woods, dried small fruits and berries, chestnuts, various cores etc.
