Is "bread flour" bleached or not?
Is there any way tell if your flour is bleached/bromated? For example, I bought some Pillsbury "Bread Flour" that is labelled as enriched. It doesn't say anything on the label about bleached or unbleached. Pillsbury also offers "All Purpose" flour in two varieties - they are clearly labelled as bleached and unbleached. If flour has been bleached, is it required to list "bleached" on the label somewhere?
I compare this to a bag of Harvest King Gold Medal "Unbleached White Flour" which says that it's unbleached - both of them seem to be about the same color but I can't tell if the Bread Flour is really whiter as if it had been bleached. They both have 4g of protein per serving (I've been told that higher protein is the point of bread flour) so maybe there's no benefit to using the Pillsbury "bread" flour instead of the Harvest King.
