This blend of Hard Red Wheat has been designed for artisan bread by Artisan Bread Bakers. Our Type 80 flour is perfect for sourdough, rustic European, and American-style breads of any shape and size. This flour also works very well in bread machines and for making laminated doughs (like croissants), quick breads (like banana bread), brownies, and is spectacular for making cookies with a chewy texture.
“Type 80” refers to the amount of Ash – bits of bran and germ – intentionally left in the flour after it has been milled. Higher Ash content increases the flavor and nutritional value of the flour without compromising its baking performance. This flour is not quite white flour and not quite whole wheat flour, but looks very similar to the All-Purpose flour you are used to.
