    Just happened to come across your wonderful flour, pastry was lovely and light and don’t think my cooking has improved that quickly so it must be down to this wonderful flour, will definitely be purchasing another!

    Made the best sausage rolls ever. Wonderful crispness of pastry….no soggy bottoms. Jam Tarts were exceptional and all down to the flour…….Been baking for 60years and wish I had found it sooner

    I bought this in ALDI over the Summer in (Ireland) and I’ve fallen in love with it, sad thing is, you can’t get it anymore and I don’t think you can buy it in Ireland, lets hope it’s shipped to Ireland 🙂

    I used Maizebite in a Frangipane tart and discovered it helps keep a lovely crisp base, stops it going soggy, lovely short, crisp texture to my pastry!

    I shall be recommending this in my blog, The Creative Yoke (

    Always prided myself on pastry making. This flour however has taken it to a new dimension, amazing.
    Cooling in the kitchen are 2 apple pies, golden and crispy.
    Can’t wait to make my mince pies, might have an early test run!
    Ordered 5 bags from a well known on line shop, giving a bag each to my daughter & daughter in law, to spread the word.

    Firstly to Sarah Cooke-O’Neil, Aldi do have Matthews flour now and again so don’t despair, it will be back on the shelves, just keep checking. I use Eight Grain to make loaves to the recipe on the bag, works every time and makes excellent bread.
    I have a bag of Maizebite and am not too sure what to make with it, the only recipe on the Matthews website is for shortbread biscuits, does anyone have any recipes they could pass on please.

    I stumbled upon the Maize Bite Flour by chance in an Aldi Store. Bought some and made pasty’s and sausage rolls. Well compared to other flour’s I have used, this is far the best. Since it is not in Aldi’s all the time, I ordered 10 pkts from FWP Matthews. It was here the next day. Their bread flour is great too. So I will be buying from them direct in the future. Cannot recommend this variety of flour’s enough. The Eight grain and Cotswold Crunch is so tasty in bread.

    • Hello Anne,

      We will be back in ALDI stores in early March with four of our product lines (Maizebite, Cotswold Crunch, Eight Grain and TIPO 00). However we do sell all 16 of our 1.5kg flours on Amazon at a cheaper price than our website.

      I hope this is of help.

      Kind regards

      FWP Matthews

    Like others in “reviews” I too bought Maizebite flour from Aldi and was sorry when I had used up the last of it. But I am so pleased to read that Aldi is to have it in again in March (2016). If I could have a wish come true I would ask that you could sell it in a lesser number than 5 bags as they would have exceeded their sell by date long before I could use the lot. Perhaps my wish has come true and I can now go along to Aldi and purchase it there.

    • Hi Christine,

      I’m so glad to hear that you love our products. Our flour is available on Amazon, where the delivery charge in cheaper and I believe you can purchase them in singular bags.

      Many thanks

    Love your maizebite flour,but seems not to be available anymore on Amazon. Please could you help,I’m wanting to buy at least 15 x 1.5 bags but your postage is so expensive, when it was on Amazon the postage was free. We have to pay nearly a third more ( £ 9.60 ) to buy it direct from you,Seems a bit unfair to your customers.
    looking forward to you reply
