Description

Strong White Flour ideal for bread making

A white, bakers grade, strong flour, suitable for bread and rolls. A good, all-round flour for a range of products.

Wheat Flour

Wheat flour, Calcium Carbonate, Iron, Niacin (B3), Thiamin (B1)]

For allergens, including cereals containing gluten, see ingredients in Bold.

A strong white flour ensures the bread will rise, as the protein, gluten, absorbs the water in the dough and becomes stretchy, trapping the carbon dioxide created by the fermenting yeast. As FWP Matthews strong white flour has a higher protein percentage than regular flour, it is known as a strong flour, giving more reliable results when making bread and bread rolls.

As the gluten sets, whilst baking, the stretched fibres give body to the bread and it’s spongy texture. When using flour of a lower protein percentage, the bread can be heavier and dense as a result. Therefore using high 13% protein strong flour is recommended.

    Thank you for this. Our Matthews Cotswold Strong White Flour is that go to flour in my house too! Have you ever though about mixing with our Matthews Eight Grain or Matthews Cotswold Crunch?

    Used to make a 50/50 loaf in my bread-maker. The rise is very good – much better than I got from supermarket flours. Lovely crumb, and a crunchy crust. Keeps well. Will definitely buy again. Many thanks for enabling this home baker to carry on making bread when other flour sources failed. Hope your business continues to flourish…

    I have not used this flour yet, three stars is due to the delivery service. Parcel left by the front door, the door bell not rang. There is a sign by the door asking for parcels to be left in the bin by the back door and the bell rang. We only knew it was there when our daughter delivered some groceries. Amazon manages to follow the instructions ok!

  20. Laura

    Hi Calli, thank you for the kind feedback! Our strong white is perfect either on its own or blended with another flour, please do let us know how you get on with the pizza bases!

  21. Calli Bradley

    Tried a white loaf first and then a half & half loaf. Really great flour, makes a light loaf with a good flavour. Certainly lighted the half and half. So far only used in the bread machine, but will use for hand made bread, rolls and pizza bases. Recommend and will buy again & deffo stop using the supermarket as my supplier.

  24. Derek Rainsford

    5 pack received in good condition and so well packed it was difficult to remove one bag! Results great and my sourdough “mother” loves it. I look forward to when we can buy mixed product 5 packs.

  25. Maria

    started purchasing from you as lockdown started as unable to purchase from supermarkets. i have been making my own bread for many years now, your flour is lovely to use which results in a beautiful bake, i use this flour for my usual daily loaf, whilst your french flour has been unavailable have used this for baguettes also, with equally good results
    this is now my second order from you and will continue to purchase from your company in the future
    thank you for all your hard work during these difficult times

    This is a beautiful flour, lovely to knead with, and makes a great loaf. I make a sourdough loaf including starter with the flour and it has a fantastic flavour. Thank you

    Hi Carole, thank you for your lovely comments – your bread sounds amazing! Our Strong White is also the perfect flour to blend with other flours from our range – Wholemeal, Rye, Crunch…. the list is endless!

    Happy baking!

    I’ve always bought flour for weekly bread making from supermarket. The difference is incredible. Makes a wonderful soft loaf with crispy crust, lasts longer and rises beautifully. Can not recommend enough.

    The loaves I have been making have been perfect. Also, in addition I’ve used my sourdough mother to make loaves which have been tasty. I would recommend using the mill flour. Well impressed.
