Abstract

Buried somewhere in the dark recesses of the unwritten history of mankind, the origin of flour milling lies unknown. Milling occurred long before any kind of pictorial or written records were kept. When wheat growing and flour processing were first mentioned in historical records, it seems that both were already ancient institutions. Somewhere back in the ages the idea of breaking up the grains between two stones slowly took form in the mind of an ancient man. Up until this time, the grains were broken only through the chewing process. With this idea, was born an industry which has survived throughout the ages and into the present.
