I just watched Alton Brown's Good Eats episode about making bread last night. He mentioned that certain flours (Whole Wheat I think was one of them) contain a lot of the germ which contains fat. Since it contains fat, it can go rancid. I don't personally know anything about flours. I am just spouting what I heard Alton say LOL.

I learned the freeze flour trick from my mom, who was a school cafeteria manager.
