VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA — AgriFORCE Growing Systems Ltd., an agricultural technology company focused on sustainable crop and nutritious food solutions, has entered into agreements for producing its patented UN(THINK) Awakened Flour with Maker’s Malt and Marquis Milling and Grain.
Awakened Flour uses a 100% natural patented process that captures the full nutritional and dietary benefits of sprouted wheat, while enhancing the flavor, texture, richness and natural sweetness that are ideal for breads and pastries. UN(THINK) Awakened Flour uses 100% of the whole wheat kernel with no added ingredients.
Maker’s Malt grows over 90% of the grain processed in its facility, while also sourcing and sprouting the grains from local farmers based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Maker’s Malt then converts the raw grains to sprouted grains using UN(THINK)’s patented process at the company’s dedicated and state-of-the-art malting facility. Following the proprietary sprouting process, Marquis Milling then mills, blends and packages UN(THINK) Awakened Flour at its facility.
UN(THINK) Awakened Flour is available for B2B customers in Canada and the United States, and AgriFORCE plans to expand sales into the direct-to-consumer market within the next couple of months.
According to AgriFORCE, tests provided by Eurofins, a leading international group of laboratories providing a range of testing and support services to the pharmaceutical, food, environmental and consumer products industries, determined UN(THINK) Awakened Flour to have over five times the fiber, up to twice the protein and 23% less net carbs compared to regular all-purpose baking flour1.“The nutritional profile of UN(THINK) Awakened Flour is a testament to our high-quality awakened grains and patented process,” said Hernando Ruiz-Jimenez, general manager of UN(THINK) Foods. “We deliver more protein and fiber with less net carbs and great taste. This is confirmed by the many trials of breads, pastries, and other products we have conducted. Furthermore, our partners in Saskatchewan, Maker’s Malt and Marquis Milling, provide a sustainable and traceable source of grains from local farmers, which is key for our customers.”
