Profile

Flaked Wheat is a versatile grain that adds unique flavors and characteristics to beer brewing. It has a mild, slightly sweet flavor profile with subtle notes of cereal and bread. This ingredient greatly influences the taste of beer by enhancing its body and mouthfeel, resulting in a smoother and creamier texture.

In addition to improving the overall texture, Flaked Wheat is commonly used for its functional properties in brewing. It aids in head retention, providing a luscious foam on top of the beer as well as increasing its haze stability. These properties make it an ideal choice for styles such as Hefeweizens, Witbiers, American Wheats, and Belgian Ales.
