wholemeal flour

Can a baker advise me if you need to sieve wholemeal flour as you would self raising or plain flour before you use it. Thank you.

No, wholemeal is as its name implies, the whole grain of wheat, by sieving it you will defeat the purpose because you will sieve out the bran

In Aust. Women's Weekly cookbooks they say to sieve the wholemeal flour, then add back the bran that stays in the sieve. So it is aerated and has the bran too.

Must admit I don't usually bother sieving flour!!

wholemeal flour

Depends what you're trying to achieve. I don't like wholemeal bread but I do like Hovis granary flour. 90% of my bread is white and I bring the fibre into my diet in other ways. It's just my preference. If you don't want the horrid bits then don't buy wholemeal -- it tends to be dry and an 'acquired taste' - one I've never acquired. From my experience if you want to sieve out the horrid bits it won't affect the dough or bread....but it will be much nicer to eat!
