Last week, our VP of Marketing, Caroline, paid a visit to Vortex Doughnuts in Asheville, NC to give a talk on wheat and to taste a test batch of Vortex's latest creation—a doughnut made with 100% Organic Super Sprout™ Sprouted Whole Grain Wheat Flour from Lindley Mills! 


Caroline's presentation, "Let's Talk Wheat" was an opportunity to inform fans of Vortex Doughnuts about wheat and how it is processed into flour, the main ingredient in Vortex's gourmet creations. She covered everything from the history of wheat to the contemporary challenges facing wheat in America.  

Vortex's "tasty, local, twisted" take on doughnuts means that they are made daily from scratch with quality, wholesome, local ingredients, and always with a "twist" of creative, unexpected flavor combinations.

This first ever batch of 100% Super Sprout™ doughnuts are the perfect swirl of tasty local goodness with a healthy twist that won't give you a sugar crash.

We are so glad we got to taste test this first batch and they were just perfect! They are not-too-sweet with a little bit of heft and creaminess in each bite. After sampling such a delicious test batch, we're looking forward to being able to purchase these regularly sometime in the near future! Check out Vortex Doughnuts on your next visit to Asheville, and sample the tasty local twisted goodness yourself!
