T45 Bagatelle flour

I was recently taking Viennoiserie and 100 % Levain courses in Brazil at “ France Panificacao “ They are the main company importing  “ Bagatelle French flour in Brazil.   I brought 12kg with me . The T45 it’s just amazing for croissants  . I did a search to purchase here in the U.S and I could not find it . Is anyone can help me ?

I will definitely check it out. Have you try it before ? What flour do you usually use to make croissants?

Speaking from experience its an incredibly weak flour and you'll note that even francine suggests strengthening this flour.  If using for croissants i would highly recomending going low on hydration like 40-45%
