Yecora Rojo is a standout performer for bread making; it is texturally smooth and lightweight, while exuding buttery and creamy flavors that enhance the end results of any baked item. Out of all the varietals we offer, Yecora Rojo is a Mill favorite! It can be used as bread flour in any recipe. Learn more about it in this video.

A favorite of West Coast artisan sourdough bakers, like Tartine, Yecora Rojo was developed by the International Maize & Wheat Improvement Center in Cooperation with the Mexican ministry of Agriculture in Mexico. It was first received in California in 1970.

    Hi Thom! Please take a look at our storage instructions here. Whole Berries have a shelf life of up to 6 years when cared for correctly. This means transferring berries to an airtight container, storing out of direct sunlight, ideally in a climate stable environment. Left to the elements in the original packaging, the shelflife is lessened. As for milled flour, we recommend storing in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer for 4-6 months. Looking forward to connecting with you via email. ~Team BSM

    One of my favorites

    I always have and use Yecoro Rojo in many of my sourdough bakes because of the great flavor with retarded fermentation or proofing. I love the flavor and the protein strength. This and Rouge de Bordeaux are my two favorites to add (35-55%) to bread flours for great performance and flavor.


    Love this company for delicious grains! Quick delivery!
