White Flour in Taiwan

White Flour in Taiwan


I have a friend who just returned to Taiwan from Canada with a great scone recipe I gave him. He tried them when he got home and they turned out like hockey pucks.  The problem seems to be the flour. Any ideas on where he can buy white all purpose flour in Taiwan?  He made the scones perfectly here in Canada so I'm assuming the flour is to blame.

Many thanks to all who can provide some assistance.

Hi, you can actually buy an amazing variety of flour in Taiwan -- sellers import from Japan some really great flour. I usually buy from

(a yahoo seller who also has a store presence, but it's out-of-the-way). There is A LOT to choose from. A good basic all-around bread flour would be "Camellia". Have him/her take a look -- the variety is overwhelming.

If your friend prefers American brands, the supermarket in 101 carries Gold Medal, I think.
