White Flour

Flour is made by grinding grain into a fine powder.  In some cases, layers such as the bran and germ are removed.  

Flour is 65% to 70% starch, but its main nutritional value is that it has from 9% to 14% protein,  the most important  being gliadin and glutenin.  It also contains other components such as cellulose, fats and sugar.

Wheat Flour Types

Flours are classified by the variety of wheat from which they were made:

Soft wheat: Bread making flours

• Hard flour:  flours with a high protein content (11% -14%).

• Soft flour: lower protein content (8% - 10%).

• Whole meal flour is made up of all parts of the grain and may be hard or soft.  It has more fiber and more micronutrients.


Hard wheat: Pasta flours.
