Flour (Meal or Wheat)

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Flour (Meal or Wheat)

Please can someone tell me if there is a difference between Wholemeal and Wholewheat flour.

I have a recipe for dog biscuits that calls for wholewheat but could only find wholemeal. Although I tried using the wholemeal they did not work out very well.

If anyone has recipes for dog biscuits I would love to see them.

You can guess I have a very spoilt dog!

Thank you

I do have a recipe, but i will have to dig out for you, i was given it about 4-5 years ago by a member from here.

and i recall it too used whole wheat.

as your profile states you are in the UK, i would recommend you got to a health food shop, like Holland & Barrett, and get your wholewheat flour from there. and it wouldn;t be buying for the sake of only making your woof some biccies, whole wheat flour s used all manner of recipes, including many bread recipes.

and actually some may think you have a pampered pooch, i don;t - this way you can control the salt and additives in your woofs titbit selection.

Hi Sam, thank you for your reply It did not enter my head that this could be something from a healthfood shop.

Now I know where to get it I can try the biccies again. I would also love to see your recipe when you find it.

Many thanks again.

Whole meal/Wholewheat

For all practical cookery purposes they are the same - or at least interchangeable. (There are some differences but for your requirements I don't think they are important).

flour meal/wheat....Dog Biccies

found my recipe, and you can at a push use "plain flour".

this is the recipe i use....

2 stock cubes (i use chicken because thats what but u can use any flavour)
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup skimmed milk
1 tablespoon margarine
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
3 1/2 cups of plain flour or wholemeal flour (i use plain)

Gas mark 4 /180c

Dissolve stock cubes in warm water. Mix grated cheese with flour
Add milk, margarine and stock cubes.
Knead dough until firm and roll to 1/4 "
thick (i put everything in food mixer and mix)
Cut out shapes/chunks and place on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for 30 minutes ( sometimes they are not very hard so i turn the oven off and leave them in there to dry out)

They are very good frozen also.

leave some in a tupperware box and freeze the rest.

"Blimey Sammy I would eat those, I will give them a try with some charcoal added, it will help Max and me with our problem."

Not meaning to be negative or anything, but you aren't really going to grind up BBQ briquettes are you? Charcoal is fine, but the commercial BBQ stuff is likely to have all sorts of chemicals in it. Not sure poisoning Max will do much for his wind ;)

I wouldn't personally give my dogs stock cubes either - v v salty. If you are serious about cooking for pets it's a good idea to look at one of the sites giving information on what foods should be avoided. Everyone knows chocolate can be dangerous, but so can less obvious things like onions and raisins, and the jury is out on garlic.

Thanks again

Ok bolas, got the message... but the thing about forums is you have no idea who is reading them, and someone less clued up than you might be cooking for a Yorkie. If ready brek can kill a baby I hazard stock cubes aren't going to do a toy breed dog any favours.

I'd say if in doubt leave it out. Dogs aren't exactly known for their sophisticated palate.... I mean, look at what they eat when left to their own devices!

ES - "If ready brek can kill a baby" -

Really? I'd never heard this. Why? Must say, I don't eat it because it's disgusting.

There was a story in the news a while back, where tragically a baby died from salt poisoning after being fed almost exclusively on this food. His parents didn't mean any harm, they just didn't know the risk.

Bolas - just a thought.

you know your Fido, has a bottom burp problem, i was thinking what food do you normally feed him.

my woof is fed purely on the "complete" dried food, with a few doggy biccies, a hide cigar, carrots and tomatoes, the odd bit of "ooops acidentally dropped a lump of beef fat on the floor", the occassional guiness.

anyway - i digress as i usually do, the choosen flavouring of dried food is lamb - as we have found when she has had in the past chicken and or turkey flavour dried food, she absolutely hum dings - and not just silent ones either, she becomes quite vocal....but when she has the lamb flavoured she is fine. we have also stopped her having lamb and beef bones as she just "smells"
after having those.


love your ever adoring Sammilicious.
