Purity Flour was first milled during Canada’s “wheat boom” in 1905 by the Western Canada Flour Mills Company, who became the largest flour milling company in Canada. Its popularity peaked during this era due to the desire for “pure,” white flour in recipes. This ideal helped to establish Purity Flour as a trusted brand and Canadian consumers were encouraged to adopt it. The Purity Flour Cook Book was proudly created in partnership with the Macdonald Institute, one of the University of Guelph’s founding colleges.
