comparison of protein content in flour

October 7, 2009 - 8:03am -- breitbaker

has anyone posted a comparison of various protein percentages in different brands/types of flour?  KA flour lists theirs, but many companies do not...I would really appreciate it if anyone here has some resources for would certainly be helpful when comparing different "bread book" authors and which flours they use in their recipes....thanks!     cathy in WI

How many kinds of flour in your pantry?

June 2, 2008 - 1:45am -- Felila

I noticed this evening that I had a fair number of different types of flour on hand:

White wholewheat bread flour
White bread flour
All purpose white
Cake flour
Corn meal
Mochiko (rice flour)

Only 6. I'm guessing that the dedicated bakers here would stock many more varieties. (Hi-gluten, barley, spelt ...). How many do YOU have?
