I have seen Italian flour available in European delicatessen.  Are you trying to avoid GMO foods or is there a quality that European flour possess that make it more desirable than it's North American counterpart.

Thanks for your comment, Gerhard,  For dietary reasons I wanted to try eating wheat products from Europe. I have talked with people who were able to eat bread and pasta with gluten when they traveled in Europe.  When they ate American wheat products with gluten, they had digestion problems .  The same situation exists with me.

could be added ingredients or lack of ingredients or method of making.

...or lack of stress while eating...

Start with pasta then, unlike flour, imported pasta is extremely common.

Just felt it wasn't appropriate to blow my own horn too loudly.
