Home Bread Flour French Bread Flour 10kg
Awarded 1 star in the Great Taste Awards.Judges comment "Made a perfect, well-risen loaf with good crumb, texture and taste." Milled in France from French wheat. It gives a light open textured loaf with a crisp crust.This flour is T65 for making bread and baguettes. The 65 refers to the amonunt of ash that is left after burning the flour.So T65 has 0.65% ash in it a T55 would be 0.55% ash and slightly whiter.The French have always used local wheat. It is low in protein.Protein when mixed with water forms gluten. Gluten is like chewing gum and is unique in wheat. It allows the gas generated by the yeast to be trapped in bubbles.The stronger the wheat the smaller the bubbles.The English have historically, because of the Empire imported wheat from India, Australia, South Americas , America and Canada. These wheats are strong in protein allowing English bakers to make small bubbles. It also allows more water to be added, if you then add a bit of fat, it allows the loaf to last for longer. Traditional French Bread is made with only flour , yeast and water. It goes stale very quickly.English wheat has been bred to be much stronger over the last 60 years.You can revive bread by reheating it in a hot oven for 3 minutes.
Baguettes with this are so much better than with ordinary strong white. Haven't got space to store bulk quantities of strong white as well so I also use this as my basic strong white bread flour when I need it, more expensive though it is.
All round excellent service
Used the wholemeal to cook our favourite carrot cake, turned out great texture. Had a lovely bowl of creamy, tasty porridge oats, fantastic with a pinch of salt and golden syrup on these chilly mornings.
Have been buying for years for my sour dough bread
Makes perfect loaf no matter what type of loaf you are making, even when you make a fruit loaf.
Love it. good product. buy again
Excellent unfortified white flour that makes the most delicious bread.
Lovely flour that makes fantastic bread, Chelsea buns and choux pastry
brilliant flour makes great bread
Authentic french sticks whoohoo. Great texture and taste but like good french bread make only what you need or freeze the second stick part baked and refresh in hot oven
It's good, though I'm yet to be convinced that it's that much better than the standard white bread flour. Both produce great bread and rolls.
fantastic flour great flavour
Again excellent as always
Good flour makes super bread! The 5% of Light Rye I add makes it even better
Always good quality making excellent bread everytime
Excellent quality flour that I use in many of my breads.
I make rolls with this on a regular basis and it has a great flavour.
So far I have used this to make a trio of bâtards. They came out really well, with good texture and excellent flavour.
tasty baguettes rises superbly
