The process of grinding the grains like wheat into flour is called milling. The wheat grains are separated into its constituents like germ, brand and endosperm. As soon as the mass of wheat arrives in the mill, it is passed to the machine for cleaning and the coarse impurities are removed.
The Flour Mill in Kolkata collects wheat and other grains in tonnes and then crushes, grinds and sieves them to get finest powdery product which is referred to as the flour.
