Can you bake with flour that has weevils?

The only problem would be if you told anyone about it. It is just a little extra protein. That may upset some people, but if you run the flour through a shifter, that should get rid of most of the weevils and there are no diseases carried by weevils. People may not want to think about it, but we all eat a fair amount of bugs every day. The USDA even has an acceptable amount of bug content in breakfast cereal. If you absolutely must use the flour, a very fine sieve should separate out the weevils. Freeze the flour for at least two days first, to kill the insects. However if you can simply buy more flour, do so: any large infestation can affect flavors. If weevils are a recurring problem for you, wrap your flour packages in plastic and keep them in the fridge. Because the weevils could well be invisible but present before you buy the flour or other dry goods, freeze the package for two days before refrigerating; this will kill off any eggs or larvae. When you find weevils present in dry foods, wrap the package in plastic and dispose in the bin. You must also vacuum the cupboards where the weevils were found and then wipe thoroughly with a damp cloth.
