Our organic organic white unbleached wheat flour (Strong Bakers) is made by ''Ardent Mills'' (Robin Hood) from organic hard spring wheat blend and is ideal for applications requiring a stronger gluten flour.

This organic flour can be used to make: European crusty breads, specialty pan breads, dinner & soft rolls, Danish pastries, sweet dough, pretzels, croissants, etc.

It is a little higher in gluten than our ''All-Purpose'' flour but the difference is marginal in most home baking applications.

 

What is the difference between beached and unbleached flour?

  • When flour is first milled, it has a yellowish cast that some consumers find unappealing. Within a few months of milling, however, these carotenoids, or pigments, in flour naturally whiten. Because it is expensive to naturally ''age'' flour, some producers expedite the process chemically.
  • In ''bleached'' flours, benzoyl peroxide is most commonly used to fade the yellow color. Organic standards prohibit the use of chemicals so none of our organic flours are bleached.
  • Cost is the only reason that pushes most commercial bakers to prefer bleached flours.

 

What is the difference between white unbleached and sifted unbleached flour?

  • Before the grains are milled into flour, white unbleached flour has the bran and germ removed.
  • Unbleached sifted white flour is milled whole just like whole brown flour. After milling it goes through a sifter that sifts out some of the bran. The result is a flour in between white and brown. It is healthier than white unbleached flour but still has a higher gluten content that whole flour making it a perfect balance for most bakery needs.
