Canadian Great White Flour

(4 customer reviews)

This truly is the “Great White” of the bread-flour world. 13.5% protein produces a strong dough with great extensibility for sourdough or yeasted bread.  This is one of the strongest white bread flours in the UK both in terms of protein quality and protein strength, making it perfect for open-texture bread. Bake by hand or with a bread maker, or blend with other lower protein wholegrain flours for delicious loaves, or flatbreads.

    This flour has revolutionised my sourdough bread baking. I struggled to get my dough to behave like the YouTube videos I was watching then switched to this flour and the difference was startling. The high protein content is what makes the difference and the flour is more absorbent so the 75% hydration dough is much easier to shape. I sometimes mix 50/50 with the strong white bread flour for a softer crumb.

    Hi Debbie, thank you for the fab feedback and it definitely sounds like you have mastered the art of sourdough! Please do send us some photos of your sourdough – we love to see them!

  3. Debbie

    Wonderful flour perfect for all bread including sourdough. I used it to make a sourdough starter and it’s been amazing. I keep it in the fridge and only have to feed it every couple of weeks, using the half I remove to bake with – so no waste!

    Hi Cy, thank you for your lovely feedback! We are big fans of the Canadian flour too, please do let us know how you get on with our other flours once they are available!

    Happy baking!

    Been bread baking for a while and have liked to try different flours as the choice of flour makes a huge difference. I am not changing in the future as this is the best bread flour. Needs slightly more water than some flours, more kneading and more patience to rise but the outcome is really good in terms of look, feel and taste.

    Once restrictions are lifted would be interested in ordering a mixed box of 5 flours as some of the others that you stock look interesting.

    Very happy with this Canadian strong white bread flour! It made the best sourdough Bread and crusty rolls I’ve baked so far.
    I’ll definitely be recommending it and fwpmatthews.co.uk to friends and family and purchasing more in the future 🙂

Milling and Provenance

100% Canadian Strong Bread flour is produced from some of the best wheat in the world. The red spring wheat comes from Manitoba. These powerful wheats from the Canadian prairie absorb more water and produce a larger and more expansive dough. This is down to cold winters, very hot summers, and great soil fertility. Manitoba flour is a term often used in Italy as a code word for “fine flour”.

Contains

Wheat

Perfect for

Open-texture bread, sourdough, white bread, large white bloomers, artisan bread, high gluten bread, noodles, flatbreads, country white bread.

Did you know

Why is Canadian wheat so good? Canadian Western Red Spring Wheat (sometimes referred to as CWRS) is the gold standard when it comes to bread-making wheat. It is renowned for its high protein content and excellent bread baking ability. The Canadian prairies have good soil, which is essential for the wheat, then a reliable “Winter Kill” during the winter which means fewer pesticides and insecticides. Followed by a long hot summer, growing conditions are perfect for wheat to develop its protein quality.
